Rantings of a sub-editor

Bizarre caption in the Metro this morning

Under a picture of a charging rhino:

Charge! Ailsa, a six-week-old white Rhino, was born after a wildlife fan watching via webcam in Cyprus saw the mother’s waters break at the Blair Drummond safari park in Stirling, Scotland.

Does that sound weird to anyone else? To me it sounds like a) she was born at six weeks, and b) she was born because the webcam watcher saw the mother’s waters break. Hmm… bad brain or bad caption…
