As the world waited with baited breath to hear news of the royal birth Monday, CNN made an unfortunate ticker mistake that caused the Twitterverse to erupt with questions.

Under the headline, “Duchess Catherine gives birth to a son,” reads the headline, “Child pronounced dead on the scene.”

“It just takes one rogue intern with a keyboard to put the entire world in a state of panic,” another person wrote.
