I'm sure the person who told them thought he or she was doing a good thing by not making them wait to hear good news. I hope this serves as a cautionary tale in the future. I also hope that the media learns that getting the scoop is not as important as checking your sources, as this misinformation went out across the country tonight as if it were confirmed news.
The one survivor is in critical condition and has been moved to a level one trauma center. Let us all pray for at least one miracle out of this tragedy.
