Old man is hit by a train - level 1
A man is at a level crossing. He is 77 years old. He is from the Czech Republic, Europe. The man starts to walk through the level crossing.
A train comes. The man does not know about the train. Suddenly, the train is behind the man. The man falls on the ground. His shoe flies away.
The man slowly walks away. He is not injured. He must pay £100.
Difficult words: level crossing (area where a road and a road for trains meet), suddenly (quickly), injured (have problems with the body), to fly away (the train hit the shoe and moved it away fast).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
