Knife in the Head – level 2

18-11-2016 07:00

A taxi driver in Peru had an argument over a motorbike with another man. The man stabbed the taxi driver in the head. He later admitted to the crime and police arrested him.

The taxi driver was walking around confused, but he remained conscious. He even walked by himself into a hospital with the knife in his head.

The doctors operated on him and removed the knife.

Difficult words: stab (cut with a knife), admit (say that you did something), confused (if you are confused, you do not know what is happening), conscious (if you are conscious, you do not fall asleep).

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