URBANA -- New numbers show fewer people died at the Champaign County nursing home during the past three months. Tuesday, WCIA-3 News reported 60 people who lived there died since December 1, 2012.

Those numbers came from the home's manager. But now one board member said that was wrong. The correct number is 46. And of those, 27 were in hospice and many were more than 90 years old. Most died from pneumonia or the flu.
