Ninja Jump Stops a Thief – level 3

06-09-2022 15:00

A security camera footage shows a car owner walking to pay at a service station in Darwin, Australia, before a figure appears from the shadows, gets into the car and starts to drive off.

However, the unsuspecting thief was stopped in his tracks by the courageous owner who launched himself feet first through the passenger side window and got inside the car. Later, the thief is running off into the distance, presumably quite startled by the turn of events.

Difficult words: footage (a video), unsuspecting (not knowing about the danger), startled (shocked), the turn of events (when things suddenly change).

You can watch the video news lower on this page.
