After takeoff, one engine had a thrust reverser deployed indication so they secured the engine and returned to land (heavy). On the approach, the pilot switched throttle levers and mistakenly brought one of the good engines to idle, leaving him with only 2. Watch the video and pay attention to the throttle position graphic. He clearly switched from the good engine to the bad. Really simple mistake that destroyed the aircraft.
