Thief steals from a drunk man – level 2, A12
This is a shocking incident at the train station in Sweden. A drunk man is first seen falling off the platform. His head hits the tracks and he is lying without moving.
Then another man jumps down to apparently rescue the man.
But, instead of helping the man to safety, he steals his money and leaves him on the tracks where he is then hit by a coming train.
Thankfully, the man survived, however, he was seriously injured and had to have half of his left foot amputated.
Swedish police are hoping that the film will help them find and arrest the thief.
You can watch the video in the Level 3 section.
Interesting words: apparently (clearly), amputated (cut), arrest (take to a police station).
