Don't worry

The tsunami and its ever spiraling death toll may have been getting you down. But don't worry. has had the following comforting headline up all day:

Swimsuit model survives tsunami

It links to sports illustrated which pictures the survivor herself. Hard to tell from the picture that she broke her pelvis, although she's obligingly undone the string which otherwise might have slightly obscured that part of her anatomy. [Yes. I know the picture is not actually meant to display her in post-tsunamic state. Perhaps I should have used a smiley here.]

Is it just me, or is this headline, with or without the implicature that swimsuit modeling helped her survive, bizarre?
