Dangerous Train Game – level 1

18-03-2021 15:00

In India, some teenagers have a game. This is a dangerous game. A fast train can hit them.

An amateur video shows seven boys. They wait for a train. They are on a bridge. The train is coming at them full speed. When the train is near them, they jump from the bridge into a river. The train almost hits them.

Then they swim in the river. They are lucky that they are alive.

Difficult words: amateur (not professional), almost (nearly), alive (not dead).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

Have you ever jumped from a bridge?
