Pranked California TV Station Reports Asiana Flight 214 Pilots Names As ‘Sum Ting Wong,’ ‘Wi Tu Lo’
One wonders how this got past an editor:
Bay Area Fox affiliate KTVU purportedly learned the names of the flight crew of Asiana flight 214, which crashed last Saturday at San Francisco International Airport, killing two. These—”Sum Ting Wong,” “Wi Tu Lo,” “Ho Lee Fuk,” and “Bang Ding Ow”—are not their names. The newscaster’s credulous reading puts it over the top.
Later, they were forced to issue:
Earlier in the newscast we gave some names of pilots involved in the Asiana Airlines crash. These names were not accurate despite an NTSB official in Washington confirming them late this morning. We apologize for the error.
Let me guess the name of the NTSB official was Ya Dis Wite
