Attack in a hospital - level 2

Attack in a hospital - level 2

13-11-2014 07:00

A 68 year-old man attacked nurses with a metal bar at a hospital in Minnesota. He injured four medical workers.

People called police officers to the scene and they tasered the man. They arrested him, but soon moved him back to the hospital because he was not well. He died there.

Doctors admitted the man to the hospital because he was delusional and confused. The cause of his death is under investigation.

Difficult words: taser (to stop somebody by using a taser which is an electrical weapon), delusional (when you think that something is happening that is not happening), confused (when you do not know what is going on).

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