And that is the question really. Whether @112canarias should have not rushed to share the information using social media.
At 16.01 hours @112canarias launched a message on Twitter saying : "Control confirms Canarias Ocean plane crash two miles Gran Canaria coast up to Jinámar number of passengers is unknown. " (Twitter screenshot above)
This information had been given to them by AENA, as it's been reproduce in the tweet, so the source of information was an official one.
Fifteen minutes after that AENA claimed that it was a "false alarm ."
The photograph of a tug with a yellow crane whose profile resembled a plane landed on water contributed to the confusion. It was the same picture that had seen from earth a witness and prompted the first warning call to the emergency number112.
18 minutes later @112canarias reported that both the Air Rescue Service (SAR ) and Air Control, as well as an emergency helicopter confirmed that it was a tugboat, and there wasn't any crash plane.
AENA assured that they had followed the normal protocol in case of plane crash , but in " no time " had given official notice of a possible accident.
Well...that is not what we can infer from the official conversation between AENA and the Emergency Service 112.
