Prisoners Save a Guard – level 1

21-07-2016 07:00

This happens in Texas, USA. Some prisoners are at a court. They are in a cell. They see the guard outside of their cell collapse. Something is wrong with him. They get out of the cell.

They do not run away. The prisoners try to help the guard. They call for help. No one comes. Then they use his radio to call for help.

More guards come. The prisoners go back in their cell. The guards try to help.

People from hospital come. They help the guard. People are thanking the prisoners for saving the guard’s life.

Difficult words: prisoner (someone who stays in jail), cell (a small room), collapse (fall down).

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