Man is hit with a hammer - level 2
A twenty-year-old man moved into a flat. His new flatmate probably had no idea what was going to happen. He attacked him with a hammer.
The aggressor thought that he killed the man, and he called the police. The police soon arrived at their address and arrested him. They sentenced him to 14 years.
They found the victim unconscious with a serious head injury. They treated him at the scene and then moved him to hospital. There he underwent emergency surgery.
Difficult words: flatmate (somebody who shares a flat with somebody), victim (somebody who is attacked), unconscious (not awake).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
