Policeman is a hero - level 2

Policeman is a hero - level 2

30-09-2013 06:00

A group of terrorists attacked a shopping centre in Kenya on Saturday. The terrorists had guns and they killed 57 people.

There is a video which was taken during the attack. It doesn't show the terrorists, but it shows a mother with her children. They are scared and they try to hide.

Luckily, there is a brave policeman who helps them. He slowly crawls to them and tells the family to go with him. But the mother is too scared to go. After some time, he convinces the family to go with him. He even protects them with his body while they're getting away.

Difficult words: crawl (move with the body close to the ground), convince (make somebody do something).

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