Montana TV station emergency service tell viewers ‘The dead are rising from the grave’

February 12th, 2013 by Marc Comments

Aghhhhhhhhhhhh! Zombie outbreak! The dead are rising from the grave! The TV said it… oh wait, it’s ok. Phew.

The people of Montana got the shock of their lives yesterday when local TV network – KRTV – initiated their Emergency Alert System declaring that “dead bodies are rising from their graves [and are] attacking the living” in several Montana counties, KRTV said on its website (video below).

The station have since issued the folllowing: “This message did not originate from KRTV, and there is no emergency. Our engineers are investigating to determine what happened and if it affected other media outlets.”

Thankfully the local police have confirmed that there were no calls placed over the announcement.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
