Accident at an underground station – level 1

26-08-2014 15:00

This happens at a London Underground station. A couple has a baby. The baby is in a pushchair. The father carries the pushchair down the stairs. He leaves it and leaves to help other people.

Nobody watches the baby. A strong gust of wind moves the pushchair. It falls on to the tracks.

The parents see what happened. The mother runs on the tracks. She saves her baby. Police look for the parents. They want to know if the baby is fine.

Difficult words: pushchair (chair for a baby which can move), gust (when the wind blows quickly), tracks (road for the train).

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

Would you punish the parents?
