For the record

April 20, 2013

Boston Marathon heroes: An article in the April 18 Section A about heroic actions after the Boston Marathon bombings quoted Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick as saying that one of the wounded was trying to locate a man who had helped her, described as an Army veteran named Tyler who had served in Afghanistan. After publication, The Times spoke with Tyler Dodd, who said that there appeared to have been a misunderstanding in the chaos after the explosions. Dodd told The Times that he had not served in the military, as the governor had said, though he had comforted the woman and shown her his own scars from a previous injury.

Bullet train: An article in the April 19 LATExtra section about a bidding process used by the California High-Speed Rail Authority misidentified a construction expert at the Design Build Institute of America. He is Rex Huffman, not Huffington.

Lakers game: An information box accompanying an article in the April 19 Sports section said that the Lakers would be playing the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday. As the article correctly noted, the game will be played on Sunday in San Antonio at 12:30 p.m PDT.

The Masters: A column in the April 14 Sports section said that Roberto De Vicenzo "lost a Masters title" for signing an incorrect scorecard after the final round of the tournament in 1968. Even without the error, which inflated his score by one stroke, he would not necessarily have been the winner; he would have been in a playoff with Bob Goalby.
