Masked men in a hospital - level 2
Security cameras captured a group of men who entered a hospital in Bogota with guns and masks.
They came to the hospital to rescue a prisoner who was getting a check-up there. They were firing inside the hospital's reception area. The frightened patients could only cower. It looked like a scene from a Hollywood movie.
The criminals succeeded. They took the prisoner and ran away. A Colombian newspaper reported that four men have been arrested since the incident and the government put up a reward of around $15,000 for information which could help them to catch the prisoner.
Difficult words: rescue (save), check-up (when the doctor looks if everything's fine), cower (get down in fear).
