Nurse saved a man - level 2

Nurse saved a man - level 2

15-05-2013 14:00

A trainee nurse saved a man who fell onto the railway tracks at a Brisbane station.

A security camera recorded the whole incident. It shows how the man lost balance on the platform. Then he fell down onto the tracks. Everybody was shouting at him to get off the tracks. Then a young nurse went down and she helped the man.

One rail employee quickly stopped the coming trains. This was helpful but it was the unnamed trainee nurse who risked her life to get the man safely. She showed her brave character.

Interesting words: trainee (person who is still learning), track (railway line).

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