Helicopter in action - level 2

10-05-2013 14:00

There is a new video which was filmed from a Brazilian police helicopter. The people in the helicopter were trying to shoot a man who sold drugs and who was getting away in his car. It all happened in the streets of a city and looked like part from an action movie.

After a few minutes, this car stopped but the drug dealer ran away. The police didn't get him but he was found dead the next day.

This incident was shown on the Brazilian TV. They started to investigate if people on the helicopter didn't use too much force. It was all very dangerous.

Interesting words: investigate (try to get information and understand), force (power).

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