Policeman saved a man - level 3

Policeman saved a man - level 3

02-05-2013 06:00

A dramatic rescue as a quick-thinking police officer catches a man by his shirt as he attempts to jump in front of an oncoming train.

The officer's heroic act was caught on CCTV in Colombia with the man seen standing on the platform looking uneasy as he waits for the approaching train.

Seeing something as wrong, he then grabs the man by the shirt and pulls him safely back onto the platform.

Interesting words: attempt (try), CCTV (security cameras), uneasy (not relaxed), grab (catch quickly).
