Man dies in front of a hospital - level 2
A man was having a heart attack in front of a hospital in England. He fell to the ground in pain. A paramedic sat in a nearby ambulance and saw what was happening.
However, he did not attend to the dying man or 30 seconds. Then the paramedic left his ambulance and went to him. He didn’t take any medical equipment with him – he just talked to him for around two minutes. He then returned to his ambulance.
The paramedic let the man die. Authorities ordered 240 hours of community service and the paramedic no longer works in that job.
Difficult words: paramedic (somebody who does medical work but is not a doctor), attend (to help), community service (unpaid work which normal people can do and criminals must do).
