Spanish newspaper website confuses Dublin floods with cruise disaster
LEADING Spanish newspaper El Mundo has comprehensively covered the Costa Concordia cruise disaster – by including Dundrum Town Centre footage of the floods last autumn.
The glaring error was spotted by Panti’s Blog-Job which asks: “So not even disaster reporting is trustworthy now?”
The newspaper website’s video of the cruise ship evacuation includes the YouTube footage of water flooding into the south Dublin centre when a river burst its banks last October.
The blog reports that the Spanish voice-over on the video states that the footage is of water flooding the boat’s lower decks.
