New Delhi: In a mad rush to 'break' the news, a local television news channel went overboard when they mistook a film shoot for an actual plane crash site.
The news anchor of WGN-Channel 9 morning news show reported a single engine plane crashing after their helicopters recorded the event. However, lack of frenzy around the 'crash-site' surprised the viewers and left news anchor wandering.
A second news break, for the newsroom, revealed the actual news. The news anchors quickly apologised for the mistake. The news anchor said that the film crew should have informed the news agencies beforehand.
