Old man is hit by a train - level 2
A security camera captured the moment a train hit a pensioner. The man was 77 years old and he was from the Czech Republic, Europe.
The man started to walk through a level crossing in a Czech village. He did not know about the approaching train. Suddenly, the train appeared behind the man. He fell on the ground and his shoe flew away.
The man hobbled away and he was not injured. The man will have to pay £100 over the incident.
Difficult words: pensioner (person who doesn’t work anymore and receives money from the government), approach (move towards something), hobble (to walk with difficulty).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
