In an apology posted on their Facebook account, the network said: "Yep; our bad; we own it. A careless editing error at the end of the Michael Clarke Duncan story in our 11pm news. Two entertainment stories accidentally merged into one video clip. Sincere apologies."
Yesterday, a coroner ruled Michael died of natural causes after passing away in hospital on Monday morning.
