Apparently the announcement was somewhat premature. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tony_Dow#Health

The CNN story on Tony Dow has been updated accordingly. His wife says he's still alive, in hospice care. The Facebook statement his management gave has been taken down.

As have numerous other sites. An updated page at the NY Post indicates the mistake originated with his wife. Others indicate his management.


Quote:
Dow's wife, Lauren Shulkind, gave the "false information" to his management team, his son explained to Fox News Digital. Per TMZ, Dow's wife is "very distraught" and "believed her husband was dead." She then told Dow's management team.
Christopher also shared an update to Facebook, writing: "This is a difficult time. Dad is at home, under hospice care, and in his last hours. My wife and I are by his side along with many friends that have visited. He has a fighting heart."

I remember hearing about many premature reports of the death of Chairman Mao. One report prompted a political cartoon with an aside like, "If you keep reporting his death, sooner or later you'll be correct."

People have also prematurely reported that their own deaths were imminent. Harlan Ellison did, apparently while suffering from depression. He hung on a while, though.

The nadir of this sort of thing may be the time Oral Roberts was soliciting donations, and said if he didn't raise a specific sum (8 million dollars IIRC) that "God would call him home."
