Accident at an underground station - level 2

Accident at an underground station - level 2

26-08-2014 15:00

A security camera in London captured a shocking moment. A couple left a pushchair with their baby at the bottom of the stairs close to a platform. They went to help other family members.

A strong gust of wind blew the unattended pushchair onto the tracks. When the couple realised what happened, the mother rushed on to the tracks and saved the baby.

Police look for the couple. They want to make sure that the baby was not hurt.

Difficult words: gust (when the wind blows strongly and suddenly), unattended (unwatched), rush (move fast).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Would you punish the parents?
