Something went a bit wrong on the 11 p.m. newscast for Channel 2.

According to Deadspin, when Buffalo’s NBC affiliate, WGRZ, reported on the death of “The Green Mile” actor Michael Clarke Duncan, multiple photos of Seal ran instead.

The estranged husband of Heidi Klum, Seal is still very much alive.

Deadspin went on to debate the possibility of Getty Images mislabeling their photos, but returned to the conclusion that this mix-up shouldn’t have happened.

Duncan passed away on Monday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles where he was bring treated for a heart attack. He was 54 years old.

Below are the two images than ran during the broadcast.
