Old man is hit by a train - level 3
This CCTV footage shows the shocking moment a pensioner was hit by a speeding train.
The 77-year-old can be seen walking through a level crossing in a village in the Czech Republic. Unaware of the approaching train the man is thrown to the ground, sending his shoe flying.
The bizarrely uninjured man is then seen getting up and hobbling away. Local police have said the man had only minor injuries but will face a fine of about £100 over the incident.
Difficult words: pensioner (person who does not work anymore and receives money from the government), bizarrely (strangely), hobble (to walk with difficulty), fine (money that you have to pay as a punishment).
