Police saved a little girl - level 2

Police saved a little girl - level 2

27-06-2014 15:00

A Chinese man kidnapped his employer’s daughter. He put a 30-centimetre knife against her neck. He demanded money from his employer.

Around 50 officers arrived at the scene. They offered the man some cash, but he wanted his boss’s money only. The man carried around the little girl in his arms for more than an hour.

The child’s shoes dropped off and the police took advantage of this. They told the man to help her with her shoes. He put down his knife and the police arrested him.

Difficult words: kidnap (to take somebody somewhere by force), employer (your boss), take advantage of something (to make good use of a bad situation).

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