BBC typos galore

[sic] applies to all content below. Here are a couple of paragraphs from a BBC article I read today:

He said: "He was shocked and devastaed. The man who died was a collegaue, he asked for help and collapsed himself."

The proest added: "I went onboard to console the man’s partnet, who is also a crew member.

Four typos in two sentences. The subsequent paragraph continues with the quote, so the omission of the closing quote here is correct; but the subsequent paragraph doesn’t bother. Shocking.
