BREAKING NEWS!!!!!!!!! Plane crashes into highway! Oh wait...that's just a TV set.
Chicago TV News Anchors were left red-faced when they reported on a plane crash that was "supposedly right in the middle of the road".
The news helicopter showed the devastating footage to viewers, only to be revealed moments later that it was all part of a set for TV show Chicago Fire.
Presenter Larry Potash fought his embarrassment by commenting:
"It's for a show that nobody watches on NBC".
