I have to admit

It probably made a certain amount of sense to wait to tell the families the crushing news until they were sure of who had survived and who had died. But I still think they could have come out and said, 'we were wrong, please wait for further information' and stopped the celebration.

Man, I would not want to be the head of this company, dealing with an explosion, employee deaths, and the fallout of an information fiasco. I wouldn't be surprised if there were death threats on top of that (not condoning mind you, just observing that there's a lot of anger and bitterness as the result of this, along with the mourning).
