South African television mistakenly announced that the recently U.S. President George W. Bush died, told the BBC.
Television ETV News three seconds on the screen stood words “George Bush is dead.”
Error occurred because the technician mistakenly pressed button “broadcast live” instead of “test” when his boss asked him to show him how it looks.
- Technician pressed the wrong button. For a second the words appear on the screen, and there were only three seconds – said spokesman Vasile Vass.
He did not want to say whether the technician will be disciplinary punishment.
