Can't believe it has happened again

I am on a live shot in Maryland Heights, reporting on lane diversions and road closures as MoDot rebuilds the I-270 Dorsett Road interchange.  I logged onto the computer, got into the newscast rundown, and prepared to write my story.  I saw a script at the top of the rundown for a breaking news cut-in.  It was the drowning of the child in Lincoln County.  Two children in two days in horrible accidents.  (The Payne family tragedy in the River Des Peres was just yesterday.)   I couldn't believe my eyes.  Diana Zoga is the reporter on the story up there.  I don't envy her that.  My story may not be breaking news or particularly exciting, but at least it isn't unbearably sad.
