Typo


An interesting typo in the Independent (5 March 2009, online): a harrowing site instead of the correct sight.

We know that site and sight are homophones (words that sound identical), but since the incident involved a bulldozer, was the writer thinking of construction site, perhaps?

Perhaps they meant the site of sighting?
