It was reported that while having a vacation at the Zermatt ski resort in Zermatt, Switzerland with family and friends, he had an accident which ultimately led to his death. It is believed that the actor lost control of his snow board and struck a tree at a high-speed.
However, it has been proven that Murphy is alive and well.
Reports suggested that Eddie Murphy was immediately air lifted to a local hospital but upon arrival, it was announced that he had died instantly upon impact of the crash.
It is believed that he 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.
The false reports were indicated by a prank site, Global Associated News which said, “Actor Eddie Murphy is reported to have died shortly after a snowboard accident earlier today – August 28, 2012.”
Murphy is not the first death hoax, especially this month. Bill Cosby, Rihanna and Christiana Aguilera were victims of the death hoaxes which are leaving many people wondering, where is the fun in someone dying?
