On ksl.com today I found this gem of a headline:
3-year-old dead after drowning in hot tub
Yeah, most people are indeed dead after drowning. In fact, I've never heard of anyone who drowned and lived through it. Yes, a few lucky souls technically die and then are revived, but drowning is fatal. Otherwise it's called "near-drowning."
A better headline for this unfortunate incident? How about "Three-Year-Old Drowns In Hot Tub"? Not that anyone's pleased a child drowned, mind you, but at least the headline itself would befit a tragedy and not a comedy.
