"On Thursday, two photographs were aired on our prime time news report and on Friday we apologized," said Eddy Luis Franco, the news director for the privately-owned PAT television station.
The photographs showed the interior of an aircraft.
In the first one, passengers are seen using oxygen masks to counter the effects of loss of cabin pressure, and in the second a passenger is shown being sucked out of the rear of the aircraft as its tail breaks off.
"These two photos were apparently taken by one of the passengers on the airliner the instant before the collision and after the aircraft crashed," the news presenter said in airing the images.
She said the photographs were recovered from the memory of a digital camera that belong to passenger "Paulo Muller," a Brazilian actor.
Franco said the photographs came to the station via the Internet.
"Lost," a series produced by ABC Studios and Bad Robot Productions, tells the story of survivors of an air crash in a mysterious island in the Pacific.
