A woman and her four-year-old son fell on the tracks in Boston.

People came fast and helped the woman. She thought that the train on the other side was actually on her side of the platform.

The woman and her son went to hospital and they will be OK. People say that they were very lucky because they fell very near a track with electricity.

You can watch the video in the Level 3 section.


Interesting words: track (road for trains), actually (in fact), platform (place where people wait for a train).
