Musa Mavideniz, a 37 year old private sector worker, was injured in a work accident in Kyrenia.
Last week he was taken to the Nicosia state hospital to be treated for his injuries. However, due to a communications mix-up a number of TV channels announced the news of his death and threw his family into a panic. He has managed to speak to them and reassure them that he is very much alive!
Mr Mavideniz, who lives in Ozankoy, is in good health and has been told that he will be discharged from hospital in a few days. He was injured while putting up New Year decorations.
