Policeman falls on the ground – level 2

07-08-2014 07:00

Someone reported a burglary at a company in England. Officers came to the site. One police officer saw a van and went up to it.

He grabbed the handle, but the van started to move. The van went fast, and he still tried to hold it. He threw him to the ground. His head hit the road. The 34 year-old officer was lucky. He went to hospital and is fine now. Police investigate the incident.

Difficult words: burglary (crime of stealing), grab (to take something), handle (part of a door you use for opening it).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
