Amber test leads to error


A mistake during a test of an Oklahoma emergency-broadcast system led some
viewers to believe there was a civil emergency when there was not, KOCO-TV
reported Thursday.

The station reported that state public-safety officials determined that a
mistake at a Cox Communications Inc. outlet sent out the wrong message during a test of the
state's Amber Alert system, which is intended to mobilize media resources in an
effort to recover abducted children.
