Dramatic moment on a railway - level 2

Dramatic moment on a railway - level 2

12-06-2014 15:00

An old woman ran for her train and fell onto the tracks. A soldier, who stood on the opposite platform, jumped down and ran to her.

He lifted the woman onto the platform. Everything happened only moments before a train arrived. The train had to slam on its brakes.

The train’s camera captured the situation. The rail operator is investigating this incident.

Difficult words: platform (raised place beside a railway), slam on the brakes (to make a vehicle stop very suddenly).

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

Would you help the lady?
