Train almost hits a woman - level 1
This happens in the Netherlands. There are some people at a level crossing. They want to get to the other side.
The barriers begin to close. They run across the tracks. They are safe. A woman wants to do this, too. She thinks that she has time, but she does not.
She gets on the tracks. She sees that a train is coming. She jumps back. She is lucky. The train does not hit her. She is fine.
Difficult words: level crossing (place where a railway and a road touch), barrier (object which stops you before the railway), track (two rails for trains to move on).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
