When editors fail

I'm reading Map of Murder, an anthology published in 2007, and found this in one of the stories:
"[...] she pulled the phone plug out of the wall."
Three paragraphs later:
"She ran to the phone, dialed her father's phone number, but got a busy signal."
She shouldn't have gotten any kind of signal. The phone's not plugged in.

I found two in there like that if memory serves when I read it for review. The phone one and one other.

I think there was some talk about that at the time too on one of the lists I am on.

Still, I thought the book was a good one overall.
