Bolivian TV duped - mistakes scene from LOST as Flight 447s last moments

Bolivian TV channel PAT has been left looking embarrassed after broadcasting extraordinary images of the last moments of Air France flight 447, lost over the Atlantic on 1 June.

According to the report, the snaps were retrieved from a recovered Casio Z750, which was subsequently traced via the serial number to its owner - "Paulo G. Muller, an actor from a well-known children's theatre on the outskirts of Porto Alegre".

In fact, the camera can be traced to ABC Studios and sharp-eyed readers will notice that the photographs feature well-known actress Evangeline Lilly, aka Kate Austen from TV series Lost.

PAT has fallen hook, line and sinker for a hoax email, and to add to its embarrassment, has failed to appreciate that while the flight 447 disaster occurred at night, the images represent the daytime fictional break-up of Oceanic Flight 815

Apparently other TV stations were duped as well with people from Romania, Poland, and Kurdish TV showing the footage (comments)

I don't know why people were fooled, after all, this is the real footage of the end of Flight 447

When I first heard about this, my first thought was........some idiot's gonna be losing his/her job. I mean come on, the "real" plane went down in stormy weather at night and this hear vid shows a plane going down in sunny to fair conditions.
