The Germany weekly Der Spiegel published an obituary for George H. W. Bush by mistake, reported the AP/CBS New York.

The former president was hospitalized on Nov. 23. He was temporarily put in an intensive care unit but is now in a regular unit.

The weekly tweeted, “All newsrooms prepare obituaries for selected figures. The fact that the one for Bush senior went live was a technical mistake. Sorry!”

The obituary reportedly described him as a “colorless politician.”
