Attack in a hospital – level 1

13-11-2014 07:00

A man is at a hospital. He is very confused. He is 68 years old. The hospital is in Minnesota.

The man attacks the nurses there. He tries to hit them with a metal bar. He injures four medical workers. People call the police. They stop and arrest the man.

However, he is not well. He goes back to hospital, and he dies there.

Difficult words: confused (when you are confused, you do not know what is happening), bar (a long piece), arrest (take to police station).

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