After being called to task for inaccurate reporting by an international news organization, CNN on Thursday corrected its account of an operation performed in earthquake-ravaged Nepal by its chief medical correspondent, Sanjay Gupta.
According to the correction, which was appended Thursday to a tale of the operation written by CNN digital producer Tim Hume, the network misidentified which patient Gupta operated on:
An earlier version of this story, first published April 27, 2015, incorrectly identified the patient that Dr. Sanjay Gupta operated on after the Nepal earthquake. We regret the error. After investigating the details of the surgery, we confirmed Dr. Gupta performed brain surgery on Sandhya Chalise, as reported in the original version of this story. We have updated the story below with the correct information.
