Reuters accidentally published an obituary for a person who is actually alive!

Hungarian-American businessman and philanthropist George Soros on Thursday was dead for a while according to the international news agency. Epic reporting fail!

A red-faced Reuters took down the published obit after thirty minutes but as we all know; when something is out there on the internet, it’s out there. Thanks to Facebook and more importantly Twitter!

A screen grab of George Soros’ premature obituary is available on different websites including Slate. Have a look at it:

Reuter later apologized for the error:

 

 

But then an apology isn’t enough sometimes for such mistakes. At least not for the Twitterati!

 

 

 

 

 

While everyone else is busy in making fun of Reuters, we’ll just leave you with this song. Enjoy!
