    including and include

    Hi! How is everybody?
    I have a question.
    1- Six people were killed in the riot, including a policeman.(OALD)
    2-
    The good news delighted everyone, including me.(Macmillan)
    3-
    Eight people, including two children, were injured in the explosion.(Cambridge)
    4-
    Including Christmas Day and Boxing Day, I've got a week off work.(Cambridge)

    My friend rewrite the above sentences as follows
    1'- Six people, that included a policeman, were killed in the riot.
    2'-
    Everyone, that included me, was delighted by the good news.
    3'-
    Eight people, that included two children, were injured in the explosion.
    4'-
    I've got a week, that included Christmas Day and Boxing Day, off work.
    Are they all right? Do the relative clauses make sense, please?

    Thanks in advance.
    Best regards
    hoangkha

    If it isn't broken, don't try to fix it.

    I am a learner of English, so it is difficult for me to understand and use English correctly. Please show me the mistakes (if there are) in 1', 2', 3' and 4'. I am as your student, so what do you think if that student understands and uses English wrongly?
