100 word challenge- News report


A frightful thing has just happened at the Gillion Fair, which resulted in the death of two young girls. At the time of the incident, the famous Gillion Merry-go-round was working just fine. Unfortunately, the person who ran it forgot to tighten the screws today, making the horses snap off their ropes, taking the lives of two small children with them. Luckily, only 2/7 of the kids riding it died, though it is still very sad.


 Here is a picture of the incident:

This is famous reporter, Hamish Talko, signing off.

  3. Hamish,
    I love the way you have been creative in your choice of genre here. You have created a fun and engaging piece by cleverly mimicking the sentence structure and word choice of newspaper articles.
    Great work
