An unknown stripper suffers an injury in a fall at work and it's big news....internationally reported and even making the roll at Newzjunky this morning.
It happened in Cleveland, involved no one famous and is basicly a workplace injury no more profound than an electrician falling off a ladder.
Funny thing about stories like this...the out of town press grabs on for life getting the name and finding photos of the woman.
I checked the Cleveland Plain Dealer website at the same time and it was treated more like a local paragraph with no name, photos or much of anything.
Seems the gents getting the dance were seen fleeing the club. There's the news hook for folo up. Get their names...find a photo of them on Facebook and stake out their houses. Also interview some other strippers about occupational hazards and on Action News, you could keep it going for a week. Too bad sweeps week isn't till February, but a five part series on hazards of the sex trade is what the astute news director is surely considering.
Let's hope for a recovery for the 22 year old lass.
