GREENVILLE, GA. (FP)- A local Faux news anchor, Maya Butreek, was airlifted to a local hospital after dislocating her neck while delivering a story about new red light cameras installed near the local station.

Ram Carter, one of the station's cameramen, said his initial concern grew when he noticed the usual head turns and chin jerks started getting wildly out of control. "She looked like a <expletive> bobble head, you know, like you get at a stadium." he reported.

The station's janitor, Delmar Hogwallop, assisted in getting Maya to the rear parking area where she was air lifted. "It's pretty darn rare to see this sort of injury, but I have seen it before" referring to the late, Ron Dickman, a past Faux news anchorman at this station, who's head became detached while reporting on a small house fire seven years earlier. "Yeah, it was real, real messy. He was a good anchorman, and has been missed" Hogwallop lamented.

Faux news has enlisted the help of leading otorhinolaryngologists to study the movements of their anchor's heads and necks to prescribe head and neck braces to reduce future injuries.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
