7 A Sample Newspaper Story The Fairy Tale GazetteApril 28, 2006Bad Fall Injures ChildrenBy M. Goose, Staff WriterRhymeville- It was reported by a reliable source last night that Jack and Jill Jones both fell down a slippery hill. The twelve year old twins were sent by their mother to get a bucket of water. In returning, Jack fell down, hit his head on a rock and received a slight concussion. Jill apparently tripped over Jack, and in falling down, received a skinned knee.“I don’t know what happened,” Jill was reported as saying, “I was running home after getting the water and next thing I know, I’m flipping over Jack with water all over me hearing him say something about a broken crown.”The two were taken to county hospital. Jill was treated and released. Jack remains in satisfactory condition and will probably be released tomorrow.
