Zooey Deschanel Misidentified as Boston Marathon Bombing Suspect in Closed Captioning Error

Originally posted 04/22/2013 11:25AM

With a name like Zooey Deschanel, chances are the actress has suffered her fair share of mix-ups and mispronunciations – but nothing like quite like this.

While the second suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings was being pursued by investigators during a manhunt on Friday, Dallas-Fort Worth's Fox 4 had a closed caption fail for the record books.

As a news anchor read aloud the name of 19-year-old suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, closed captioning on screen read, "He is 19-year-old Zooey Deschanel."

Originally posted 04/21/2013 12:00PM

Two days after alleged Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was captured following an extensive manhunt, the suspect remains in serious but stable condition at a Boston hospital.

Unable to speak after sustaining injuries to the throat, according to sources, the 19-year-old suspect is "intubated and sedated," CNN reports.

"I, and I think all of the law enforcement professionals, are hoping for a host of reasons that the suspect survives, because we have a million questions, and those questions need to be answered," Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick told reporters on Saturday.

President Obama in Boston: We Will Not Be Intimidated

Originally posted 04/18/2013 02:25PM

President Barack Obama sought to inspire a stricken city and comfort an unnerved nation Thursday, declaring that Boston "will run again" and vowing to hunt down the perpetrator of the twin blasts that brought mayhem and death to the Boston Marathon.

"If they sought to intimidate us, to terrorize us ... it should be pretty clear right now that they picked the wrong city to do it," Obama said.

The president spoke at an interfaith service in Boston honoring the three people killed and more than 170 injured when a pair of bombs ripped through the crowd gathered Monday afternoon near the finish line of the famous race.

Angie Miller brought down the house Wednesday on American Idol with a rousing, emotional tribute to Boston – and later told PEOPLE that, believe it or not, she wished she could have been there Monday.

The 19-year-old Idol finalist, who hails from Beverly, Mass., north of Boston, played a stunning piano rendition of "I'll Stand By You" by the Pretenders – bringing the judges and audience to their feet in what's been a gut-wrenching week following the attacks at the Boston marathon. (Watch her performance below.)

After the show, Miller told PEOPLE about why she picked this particular song from the year she was born and how her loved ones are doing back east.

"I have lots of family, lots of friends, who ran [the marathon] and were there. So, yeah, it wasn't a great day," she said. "It's so weird, but I wish I could have been there. That's weird saying that, but I just wish I could have been there with my friends and family, and just been with them."

Boston Children's Hospital Doctor David Mooney: 'Hard to Imagine Someone Would Do This'

Originally posted 04/16/2013 06:45PM

In a hospital emergency room where tiny little patients are saved every day, medical staff has seen a lot of tragedy and trauma. But on April 15 at Boston Children's Hospital, the injuries that came through the door were different.

"These kids were really badly hurt," says trauma surgeon Dr. David Mooney, director of the trauma center at Boston Children's Hospital. "They had soot all over their faces, burnt hair and burnt eyebrows and tourniquets on their legs that first responders had put there to save their lives and keep them from bleeding to death."

Mooney says that the hospital sees an average of 30 to 40 injured children a day and many times they turn out to be less serious than what they'd originally thought.

"It was really the opposite," he says. "It was horrible. It was hard to imagine someone would do this."
