A trigger-happy ABC News editor apparently jumped the gun on Friday, publishing a pre-written story assuming that July’s jobs report would reveal a hiring slowdown — despite the fact that the report would soon reveal the U.S. added a shocking 528,000 jobs.

The error came just weeks after the news outlet accidentally published a pre-write on the death of former President Donald Trump’s first wife Ivana Trump.

On Friday, the July jobs report was released, surpassing expectations by adding 528,000 jobs last month. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the unemployment rate also fell to 3.5%.

In a screenshot posted to Twitter, comedian and political commentator Hal Sparks noted ABC accidentally published a draft story on the jobs report that was “amazingly wrong.”

The story published to ABC included “XYZ” to fill in for the numbers that had not yet been released, as well as an angle that assumed the jobs report would have bad news for President Joe Biden’s White House along with the general public.

According to the prematurely published story, ABC erroneously reported a “hiring slowdown in July,” going as far as to speculate that the July jobs report “marks the latest sign of an economic slowdown as the Federal Reserve carries out a fight against inflation.”

At 8:47 am, ABC published a corrected story highlighting that the July jobs report “defied expectations of a hiring slowdown.”

“Moreover, the figures signal an improvement from the already-robust hiring sustained over the first half of 2022,” wrote ABC in the article.

Last month, the network made a similar error, including pre-write notes in its reporting on the passing of Ivana Trump. The headline still included “DO NOT PUB,” confusing readers for nearly half an hour before the mistake was fixed by ABC.

Shocking moment fireworks show at LA Angels minor league baseball game goes spectacularly wrong as pyrotechnics are launched straight into fleeing crowd

A fireworks display at a Los Angeles Angels affiliate minor league baseball game went spectacularly wrong on Friday night as footage showed pryotechnics being launched straight into the fleeing crowd. 

Frenzied fans watching the Rocket City Trash Pandas, the affiliate team of the Los Angeles Angels based in Madison, Alabama, were left stunned as fireworks started erupting in their direction after the game.  

Professional fireworks service Pyro Shows of Alabama - the company hired for the evening - said it 'discovered that a particular product had been incorrectly inserted and secured into its holder.'

Clips from the game on Friday night show supporters fleeing the grassy banks as sparks and spray dramatically shoot towards them amid the chaos. 

The Pandas had beaten the Tennesse Smokies 4-1 before the frenzy unfolded.

'No fans were harmed, and the fireworks vendor adamantly expressed that this has never happened before in over 40 years of their experience,' the Trash Pandas said in a statement.

One person, however, was admitted to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to a statement from Madison Fire & Rescue Chief David Bailey shared with Al.com. 

Bailey described the wound as a 'slight leg injury,' adding that the injured person was a stadium employee working in the parking lot.

Fireworks at Toyota Field, home of the Rocket City Trash Pandas - the minor league affiliate team of the Los Angeles Angels - fired off wrongly as proytechnics were launched straight into the crowd after the team's 4-1 win over the Tennessee Smokies

The Trash Pandas later released a statement claiming no fans were harmed but one stadium employee was struck in the leg in a parking lot

'Madison Fire & Rescue did respond one paramedic unit and one engine company but did not need to provide patient care,' Bailey said in the statement. 

The fireworks show started right after the Trash Pandas win and behind the center of Toyota Field, home of the minor league team. 

One of the misaimed crackers went off over the right field corner towards a crowd of families with children. 

Spectators were also recorded by others running away from fireworks in one section of the field. One fan can be heard yelling in excitement: 'I was the one recording that! Look a little one!' as a another bottle rocket goes off in his direction. 

Another person said: 'oh my god' while witnessing the incident from another angle. 

Fans sitting on a mound by the stands panicked and ran for their lives after a bottle rocket came very close to them

Fireworks service Pyro Shows of Alabama, hired by the Trash Pandas for Friday's event, later said in a statement that it is 'eliminating [the device] from the show until that device and supporting procedures have been fully updated to assure providing safe shows for our customers'

The Trash Pandas later said that fireworks at the venue are 'always supervised by the Madison Fire and Rescue Departments.'

'All parties are taking extreme precautions to ensure that this does not happen again.'

Pyro Shows of Alabama, the fireworks service hired for the occasion, added that it is 'eliminating' the device from future shows until it has been 'fully updated to assure providing safe shows for our customers.'  

The Trash Pandas have regularly held fireworks throughout the season, making it a tradition to put them on display after every Friday home game.
