Charlie Sheen is the victim of an ‘accident hoax’December 2nd, 2011 - 11:10 pm ICT by Aishwarya Bhatt
New York, Dec 2 (THAINDIAN NEWS) “Witnesses indicate that Charlie Sheen lost control of his snowboard and struck a tree at a high rate of speed. Charlie Sheen was air lifted by ski patrol teams to a local hospital, however, it is believed that the actor died instantly from the impact of the crash.”
If you happened to read the above story on the website of Mediafetcher and other media outlets, don’t take it serious because it has turned out to be a death hoax. Not only is the former Two and a Half Men star alive but he was not even at the place that the report placed him.
The original report which was carried by Mediafetcher claimed that Sheen had the ski accident at the Swiss resort of Zermatt. The report was picked and has been trending on Facebook and Twitter. Gossip Cop reports that not only is Sheen alive but he is also doing “well.”
Sheen recently paid tribute to comedian Patrick O’Neal who died from stroke complications. He described O’Neal as having the “rare light” during a tribute which he posted on his Twitter page.
This is not the first time that Sheen has been the subject of a death hoax. The actor was reported to be dead in December last year with the report claiming that he had a snowboard accident.
