This happens at a train station. An old woman runs for her train. She falls onto the tracks. A soldier sees her. He runs to her. He helps her. He lifts her on the platform.

A train is coming. Everything happens before the train comes. The train must slam on its brakes.

There is a camera on the train. It captures this situation.

Difficult words: lift (move up), platform (area where people stand which is close to a railway), slam on the brakes (make a train or a car stop quickly).

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