    Updated: Feb-05-16 4:54 pm

    FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida - In a story Dec. 24 about the death of Dr. Robert B. Hayling, The Associated Press reported erroneously that Hayling was among a group known as "The St. Augustine Four" who were members of the NAACP Youth Council. Hayling was an adviser to the Youth Council but was not part of "The St. Augustine Four," known for spending six months in a Florida jail and reform school in 1964 after they asked to be served at a Woolworth's lunch counter. The AP also reported erroneously the date Hayling died. He died Monday, Dec. 21, 2015, not Sunday, Dec. 20. The story also reported erroneously that a public memorial service was being planned for January; it is scheduled for Feb. 20.
