Teenager saves a policeman – level 1

19-01-2015 07:00

Police arrest a teenager in Florida. He is African American. He is in a police station. He sits in a room with a policeman. The policeman does some paperwork.

Something happens to him. He falls from the chair. He is in extreme pain. He holds his chest. The teenager sees all of this. He calls the other policemen. They come and help the policeman.

Difficult words: arrest (to take to a police station), paperwork (to fill out papers about something), chest (the front part of your body between the neck and the belly).

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