ALEXANDRIA, La. - A false Facebook posting got a little out of hand Tuesday, stating that a local dentist had died. The trouble is, he's still alive.
NewsChannel 5/CBS 2 just want to set the record straight: On Monday, somebody mistakenly posted on our Facebook wall that Alexandria dentist Norm Thompson died.
However, Thompson is alive and well. He says his office has been quite busy, answering dozens of calls from concerned patients and even family members.
Thompson's employees say they spoke with the person who wrote the false post, and she said it was a huge misunderstanding. The woman said she misunderstood when a friend told her that another man of the same first name had passed away.
Dr. Thompson says he is happy to set the rumors straight.
