Prisoners Save a Guard – level 2
In Texas, USA, some prisoners did a very surprising thing. When they saw their guard collapse outside their cell, they broke out not to run away but to help him. They called for help and when no one came, they used his radio to call for other guards at the court.
The other guards showed up and put the prisoners back into their cell. The others tried CPR and then called for paramedics. The guard ended up surviving, and people are now crediting these prisoners for their quick actions.
Difficult words: collapse (fall down from a problem), paramedic (a person who tries to save a life before that person goes to hospital), CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation – stimulating the heart and breathing inside the body to help the person), credit (say someone did something good).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
