South African TV channel ETV News Information mistakenly placed in the running of the news reported that former U.S. President George W. Bush, Jr. has died. The message of the passing of the 43rd President of the United States stayed on the air for three seconds during one of the news releases, reports BBC News.
It was found that the "death" Bush has become a consequence of an error technique, which mixed a button, and instead, to launch the line in the test mode, has sent her to live. For example, the message of the passing of Bush's leadership wanted to see the TV test running line.
After this incident, representatives of ETV News promised that henceforth, all the test messages will be written in "tarabarskom language" (in the BBC article used the word "gobbledegook", the closest analogue of which in Russian is "nonsense"). Incurred whether mixed buttons technician punishment, the ETV News declined to specify.
