People Hear a Private Chat – level 1

09-04-2020 15:00

Here is news from Winnipeg. Winnipeg is in Canada. Two policemen are in a helicopter. They are on patrol. They chat. Their conversation is X-rated.

They are very unlucky. They do not know that the public address system is on. This means that many people on the ground can hear them.

This is very embarrassing. Some people talk about this on Twitter.

The Winnipeg Police apologises to people.

Difficult words: patrol (when you take a trip to see if everything is OK), X-rated (private; only for people who are over the age of 18 or 21), embarrassing (something embarrassing makes you feel bad).

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