If participles modify nouns, they are adjectives ('worried' is modifying 'he'). Participles are words that usually end in -ed or -ing and derive from verbs.

7. His story was HEART-BREAKING.
Proper Adjective
Compound Adjective
Participle Adjective

Compound adjectives join more than one word into a single lexical unit, which then modifies a noun. They are usually (though not always) separated by a hyphen or joined by quotation marks.
