No they are different types of crossing.

A zebra crossing is used on quietier roads. The cars stop for you when you step on the crossing.

A pedestrain crossinghave traffic lights to stop the cars. It tells you when to cross via lights and bleeps for the blind.

PS. if you haven't guessed a zebra crossing is black and white stripped.

Hi,

Yes. But we don't say 'zebra crossing' in N. America.

Where I live, we say 'crosswalk'.

It seem that our friends in America/Canada use crosswalk rather than a zebra crossing. That might suggest that you are learning British English rather than American English. Either way the old man was helped across the road at a crossing.
