Gov. Andrew Cuomo was met with loud gasps Monday at the breakfast preceding the West Indian Day parade when he mourned the passing of Una Clarke, a major figure in the Caribbean-American community.

Clarke, 83, is very much alive.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Una Clarke, God rest her soul,” Cuomo said as an uproar reverberated through the crowd at the annual celebration of Caribbean culture.

Clarke, the first Caribbean-born woman elected to the City Council, is now a trustee of the City University of New York.

She’s also the mother of Brooklyn Rep. Yvette Clarke, who was in the audience when the governor made — and quickly corrected — his gaffe.

Cuomo was recognizing prominent Caribbean-Americans who recently died, including parade organizer Bill Howard, when he mistakenly included Una Clarke.
