MURCIA — A council mistakenly claimed a pack of ten wild dogs attacked and killed a man in a park in Murcia, eastern Spain.

Witnesses were said to have told the local council the man was attacked in a city park called Las Siete Sillas.

Without checking the cause of the man's death, a council spokesman told the Spanish media, the man had fallen victim to a pack of dogs and died in hospital.

In fact, the truth was more mundane.

The man had died from natural causes and had suffered a number of injuries when he fell over in the park.

He lost a lot of blood and died later in hospital.
