Killer Robots and clickbait

The Financial Times took a sad but local story about a man dying while building an automobile assembly line and turned it into a 1950s science fiction thriller. The headline:

Worker killed in Volkswagen robot accident

Oh noooooooooooooo!

Of course the actual news was:
A 21 year old external contractor was installing the robot together with a colleague when he was struck in the chest by the robot and pressed against a metal plate. He later died of his injuries, reports Chris Bryant, the FT's Frankfurt correspondent.
Hate to be a killjoy.
