    a weird sentence construction, isn't it?

    "It should be found another way to save Kate's life"

    It sounds extremely weird to me. I am not a native speaker but I doubt you cay say it for what should be found here is "another way to save Kate's life", so you don't need "it"

    I would rather say:
    "another way to save Kate's life should be found"

    Am I right?

    Unnatural and doesn't make sense.

    Grammatical and understandable.
