Alive or dead?

According to an online VOCM story dated June 30 but still running at 5:00 PM, July 2:

A friend of the bicyclist critically injured in an accident with a parked truck Friday on the Outer Ring Road is appealing to the public.  The 48 year-old man collided with a parked truck near the interchange at Portugal Cove Road late kast [sic] week. Bill, speaking on VOCM Open Line with Randy Simms, says the man is not able to communicate the details of the accident. He's hoping that someone may have seen the accident and will call the police.

The headline says: “Cyclist Remains Critical”.

According to a CBC story posted on line July 2:

Cyclist Mike Dinn, 48, died Tuesday afternoon [June 30 for those without a calendar handy] of injuries he sustained after striking a large truck parked on the shoulder of the Outer Ring Road last Friday.

So which is it?
