New Zealand Herald Clarification & Correction

Victoria Hawkins |

"Three people who lost their lives in cases in which defibrillators failed did not die as a result of the equipment failures, St John has reiterated.  While this finding was reported on May 12, St John has taken exception to the headlines: ‘Three deaths as defibrillators fail’ and ‘St John gaffe: 3 end up dead.’  In another case, a headline on May 13 was incorrect, when it stated a North Shore woman had battled St John for information on faulty gear, after the death of her mother. In fact, the woman had sought legal advice on other matters arising from the case.  The Herald regrets that error and is happy to reiterate St John’s findings on the other cases."
