Adam Sandler has been reported dead again, in yet another fatal snowboarding accident. The false claim has an accompanying Facebook page.

The false report claims that the actor died in an accident on October 13, 2013 in a snowboarding accident at the Zermatt ski resort in Zermatt, Switzerland. This same ski resort is responsible for the fake deaths of many celebrities, including Sandler himself, many times over at this point.

Falling off of a cliff in New Zealand is another method that is responsible for the fake deaths of many celebrities, along with Facebook pages that perpetuate the rumors. Some of the Facebook pages also contain links that have malicious browser extensions that can be harmful to computers.

In this version, he crashed into a tree after losing control of his snowboard before being airlifted to the hospital, but the actor is actually alive and well. Most of these fake reports result from a web site that allows users to input a celebrities name and create a fake news story about their death. Judging by the number of death hoaxes recently, the site is quite popular, and unfortunately, too easily believed by many fans who believe the upsetting news that their favorite actor has died.

Previous victims of the Internet death hoax include Sandler himself, as well as Justin Bieber, Jackie Chan, Angelina Jolie, Cyndi Lauper, Miley Cyrus, Justin Timberlake, Kristin Stewart and Michael J. Fox.

Readers should check reputable news web sites if they read about a celebrity death.  The news would be reported widely, not just on Twitter, where many of these false reports gain traction.

Many of the celebrities have even taken to Twitter to post photographs of themselves to prove to fans that the stories are false and that they are actually alive and well.  Jackie Chan even went so far as posting a photo of himself holding a newspaper with the date to show he was alive.
