Very dangerous situation - level 2
A man from Brisbane, Australia is lucky to live. He waited for a train to pass but didn't notice that there was another train which was coming in the opposite direction.
The express train was going 60 kilometres an hour (37 miles per hour) and it almost hit the man. He was very close to the train.
The twenty year old man has only minor injuries but he must pay $2,200.
Difficult words: pass (go by), injury (damage to part of your body).
