Men jump in New York - level 2

Men jump in New York - level 2

31-03-2014 15:00

Three men jumped from the World Trade Centre in New York. The scary jump from the 104 storey building was filmed by a head camera. The empty streets of the city were also seen.

Security cameras around the building filmed at least two people in black suits and helmets. Three men jumped while one waited on the ground.

The four men turned themselves in at a New York police station. The men were charged for burglary.

Difficult words: turned themselves in (they went to the police station and said what they’d done), charge (say that somebody has done something wrong), burglary (crime of getting into a building).

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

Are these men criminals or not?
