Headline: Cat caught vs. cat survives

Newspaper headline: Cat caught in steel trap survives

This headline forced me to re-read it. "Cat caught in steel trap" is a nominal here, and I think it would read better this way:

Cat survives jaws of steel trap

Survives works better up front. What do you think?
