The article clearly states the correct number:

“On December 7th, 1941, the United States naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii was attacked by the Japanese navy, killing 2,403 Americans and wounding 1,178.”

It sounds like a verbal typo, 24 thousand instead of 24 hundred. Not a big deal in this context.

Well written article but a mistake has been made. At 2:09 you state that 24,000 people died at Pearl Harbor. In reality, only 2400 died.
