The squirrel’s condition was not immediately available.

A squirrel hopped on to the high voltage power lines that feed Los Angeles International Airport this morning, disrupting the electrical supply to the airport and causing all the air conditioning to shut off. Three hours later the airport maintenance guys were only able to get two of the terminals back up and running. That shouldn’t be a problem on a day where record heat is expected, right??

And the article actually reports that, “The squirrel’s condition was not immediately available.”

Top notch writing. There’s another very badly written sentence in the story as well, but I won’t give them the benefit of reproducing the crap.
