Aaron Aziz is dead. At least that's what the Internet is saying. However the Singaporean actor didn't die. He's just the victim of an Internet death hoax. Aaron Aziz is just fine.

A report surfaced this week saying that Aziz died in a snowboarding accident. Global Associated News reported "Actor Aaron Aziz is reported to have died shortly after a snowboard accident earlier today - September 29, 2013. The actor & novice snowboarder was vacationing at the Zermatt ski resort in Zermatt, Switzerland with family and friends. Witnesses indicate that Aaron Aziz lost control of his snowboard and struck a tree at a high rate of speed.

Aaron Aziz 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. The actor was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident and drugs and alcohol do not appear to have played any part in his death."

Since there are so many details to the story, it might be easy to believe that it's real. However the report is false. Global Associated News is a generator that is used to create fake news reports.

A message at the bottom of the site reads: "FAKE... THIS STORY IS 100% FAKE! this is an entertainment website, and this is a totally fake article based on zero truth and is a complete work of fiction for entertainment purposes!"

Despite the story being false, some took to Twitter to mourn and question the death of the actor. Some examples of tweets include:

"Is it true that aaron aziz died?!"

"For real ah Aaron Aziz died?!"

"Is aaron aziz really dead?!"

"Aaron Aziz dead?! Nooooooooo D':"
