Seems as someone duped this news station by giving them footage from the Oceanic Flight 815 crash scene and telling them it was actual footage from Air France Flight 447’s tragic crash. As Jeff Koyen points out why didn’t the news station take a harder look at the footage in question? Why does it look cinematic and sports a widescreen view?
Apparently their explanation for even retrieving the footage is that the camera was destroyed, but the memory card came out unscathed.
