No hyphens and no facts

This sentence (from "Boy bitten in bizarre Abbotsford washroom attack" on CBC News online on October 13, 2011) seems straightforward enough, but

three sentences later, the definitely 10-year-old boy (hyphens should be included in the age there) is now only "approximately" 10 years old (hyphens should not be included in the age there). Looking at the article now, Wednesday has been changed to Saturday. Ooooookay. Click an image to enlarge it.
