Policeman saves a man - level 1

Policeman saves a man - level 1

25-08-2014 07:00

An American policeman is on patrol. He drives over a bridge. The policeman sees a man. The man stands on the edge of the bridge.

The policeman stops his car. The man wants to jump off of the bridge! The cop gets out of the car and catches the man. The man is pulled to safety.

We don’t know the man’s name. He is in hospital.

Difficult words: be on patrol (to watch an area), cop (policeman), pull (move).

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

How do you think the man who wanted to jump felt after he was saved?
