Lord of the Flies

British boys stranded on an island for weeks!

Breaking News!

Several British boys were in a plane crash in the middle of the ocean, luckily able to find an island to survive on for weeks without any adult figure there to guide them. Two boys, Simon and "Piggy" unfortunately did not make it off the island. The other boys however made it off the island with minor injuries sustained from fighting with one another. There were two "tribes" on the island among which they fought later trying to kill the "chief," Ralph of one of the tribes before being rescued by an officer.


Ralph's Interview

Sue: So, Ralph, what was it like being on an island for weeks with no adults there?

Ralph: I was trying to convince the other boys that a fire was the most important thing.

Sue: Why did you think fire was the most important thing?

Ralph: Because if we had fire, we had smoke which meant more of a chance of someone on a ship seeing us. There was one point where a ship went by but we didn't have smoke going up so they didn't see us.

Sue: I see, and what happened to Simon and Ralph.

Ralph: They...were killed.

Sue: I'm so sorry for the losses of your friends.

Ralph: Thanks.

Sue: Do you have anything else to say?

Ralph: Yeah, make sure that if your ever in that situation, stick together and listen to everybody!

Sue: Thank you Ralph.


After all of this some boys were hospitalized for dehydration and malnutrition but they are all in stable condition and are looking forward to finally going home. As for the deaths of Simon and "Piggy" they are being looked into and there is going to be a service for them sometime soon. No other information has been released at this time.
