Order News Events

Below is a news report with certain words colored. Your task is to decide if the events that the colored words describe happened before or after each other. The article is describing real world events, so you must decide how the events happened in the real world. If you are not sure which happened first, please mark your best guess. The full article is provided, but usually you will not have to read all of it in order to determine which event happened first.

For example, in the following two sentences, "pushed" happened before "fell", even though "fell" might occur before "pushed" in the actual text ordering:
