Train almost hits two women - level 1

Train almost hits two women - level 1

07-08-2014 15:00

Two women are on a railway bridge. The women cannot leave the bridge, and a train is coming. They start to run, but the train is too fast. They must lie down on the train tracks.

There are only ten centimetres between the train and the ground. The women are lucky. They are fine. They get up and run away.

Difficult words: railway bridge (bridge for trains), lay down (get down), train tracks (bars that a train runs along).

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

Is it illegal to walk on railway tracks?
