Policeman saved a man - level 2

Policeman saved a man - level 2

02-05-2013 06:00

A brave police officer in Colombia saved the man who tried to jump in front of a train which was coming to the station.

The officer's heroic act was caught on camera. The video also shows the man right before his jump. He was not looking good.

As the man tried to kill himself, the policeman quickly held his shirt and pulled him back onto the platform.

Interesting words: heroic (very brave), platform (place where people wait for a train).

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