Train almost hits two women - level 2

Train almost hits two women - level 2

07-08-2014 15:00

Two women from the USA found themselves trapped on a railway bridge. The women started running for their lives, as a train was coming. However, they were not fast enough.

But don’t worry! They are fine. They laid down in the middle of the tracks. There were only ten centimetres between them and the train.

After the train stopped, both women stood up and ran away. That is what you call a lucky escape!

Difficult words: trapped (not able to leave), run for your life (to run or do something quickly to escape danger that can kill yoy), lay down (get down on the ground), lucky escape (action of escaping danger narrowly).

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