A piece by Matt Stevens in the L.A. Times says:
Authorities have identified a suspected drunk driver who they say drove the wrong direction on the 60 Freeway in Diamond Bar early Sunday and caused an accident that killed six people.
Olivia Carolee Culbreath, 21, of Fontana has been arrested on suspicion of felony DUI and felony manslaughter, said Rodrigo Jimenez, a California Highway Patrol spokesman on the scene. Culbreath is in serious condition at the Los Angeles County/USC Medical Center with a broken femur and a ruptured bladder, Jimenez said.
No problem there. The thing is, that last sentence initially read that the suspect had a ruptured “blatter.” And when professional newspeople put that stuff on the Internet, it stays there — if you know where to look.
The tipoff comes in the comments. The first one (at the bottom) says:
Ruptured “blatter”? What is wrong with this newspaper. It’s a ruptured BLADDER! Please read what you write/type.
And it turns out that if you put this phrase into Google:
Culbreath is in serious condition at the Los Angeles County/USC Medical Center with a broken femur and a ruptured blatter, Jimenez said.
You get a result that shows two links: one to a news aggregator that scraped the L.A. Times article, and one to the L.A. Times article.
The link to the aggregator is still available and I have preserved a screenshot here. (That URL in the bottom left of the screenshot is the URL you get when you hover the cursor over the “more” at the end of the quote.)
By the way, in response to the commenter “Please read what you write/type.” another commenter replied:
That would require someone that is being paid above minimum wage.
An argument for increasing the minimum wage!
Thanks to a sharp-eyed reader.
