L, F, What's the Difference?

I'm reading a book about disaster management and there a couple of places where what should  be an l is actually an f. The first one isn't so bad. It says:

In a number of disasters, many fives have been saved, even in the face of tremendous property losses, because the affected population received advanced warning

But the second one is worse.

Pre-arranged agreements with the media provide the public with toll-free numbers to these regional information centers where they might learn if their relatives are fisted as known fatalities, or if relocated or injured, where they are now.

Saving Lives vs Reversing Death

This article about resuscitation science is both glammed up and dumbed down but if you mostly just pay attention to the actual quotes you can get some nice up to date news on where we're headed. I actually just finished a class on this subject a few weeks ago so know a bit about this. Interesting stuff is on the horizon. I'm especially looking forward to where mitochondrial medicine takes us.
