People help a man - level 2

A man was getting on a train in Australia when he slipped and his leg wedged in the gap. Passengers moved to one side of the train to transfer weight away from him, but that did not help.

Passengers exited the train and lined up alongside it. They pushed to free the man. Someone called an ambulance to the station, but he was fine.

Difficult words: slip (to lose your balance and fall), wedge (to put something into a narrow space), gap (small, tight space), transfer (move).

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