I knew there was a reason I have never seen that last clip before!
Still, the first part cannot be argued.
Yes it can. Simple miscommunication.
Why on earth would 'they' inform the BBC early? What would they have to gain? Why not just logically allow the building to fall, and have it reported as it happens?
The building was on fire, and was known it was to collapse eventually hours before the collapse. It was reported from the fire department that the building was going to collapse. She even says 'details are very very sketchy'. Information going around could of easily started off as 'About to collapse' and got miscommunicated as 'collapsed'
