TV anchor accidentally reports Hillary Clinton died

McClatchy reports:
A TV anchor started his broadcast Sunday with a startling statement.

“Good evening,” said WABC weekend anchor Joe Torres. “We begin with Hillary Clinton’s death.”

Torres didn’t correct himself, but the broadcast continued on to report Clinton’s health troubles at Sunday’s 9/11 memorial ceremony in New York. The Democratic presidential candidate was dehydrated standing outside on the hot day, her campaign said, and video taken of her leaving the site early showed her needing assistance to get into a van.

The station told TVSpy that the mistake was accidental.

Mistakes were made.
