CNN's Jean Meserve Explains How They Mistook Potomac Coast Guard Training Exercise for a Live-Fire Incident - Vieo 9/11/09
Here is video of CNN's Jean Meserve explaining how they mistook a Coast Guard Training Exercise on the Potomac River in Washington D.C. today, for a real live-fire incident.
Meserve explained they heard audio from the Coast Guard saying "10 rounds have been expended." There were boats on the river that appeared to be trying to evade the Coast Guard as well. Eventually, they got the word from the Coast Guard that it was a training exercise and no rounds had ever been fired.
With the exercise coming on September 11, it caused quite a stir for about half an hour this morning.
