Ninja Jump Stops a Thief – level 2

06-09-2022 15:00

In Australia, a driver was at a petrol station. When he walked away from his car to pay, a person got into his car and tried to drive off.

The driver wanted to stop the thief, so he launched himself feet first through the passenger side window. He did a ninja jump!

The jump scared the thief and he ran away. He is now wanted by the police.

Difficult words: drive off (to drive quickly away), thief (somebody who steals things), launch oneself (to make a quick, energetic movement to attack).

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

How would you stop a thief?
