St. Louis station retracts ‘mass casualty’ report

A St. Louis television station retracted a report Friday that a hotel had experienced a “mass casualty event” as a tornado blew through.

During a live broadcast, KMOV-TV reported the event took place at the Holiday Inn in Earth City, Mo. A reporter who was near the hotel said there were trees and power lines down in the area.

The television station later retracted the report.

The hotel is located northwest of the St. Louis area.
