George H.W. Bush is on the mend, but a famous German newspaper mistakenly bumped him off on Sunday, briefly publishing online an unfinished obituary of America's 41st president.

The mistake came after an editor at Der Spiegel apparently misconstrued a Bush family spokesperson's statement that the 88-year-old had been moved out of intensive care Saturday.
