Jackie Chan Not Dead: Legendary Actor Denies Death Rumours, Posts Photo on Facebook
Martial arts legend Jackie Chan is very much alive, thus putting to rest spurious reports that claimed he died in a vehicle crash.
The rumours started when a Facebook page "R.I.P. Jackie Chan" posted a story of the actor's sudden death with a post: "At about 11 a.m. ET on Wednesday (June 19, 2013), our beloved actor Jackie Chan passed away. Jackie Chan was born on April 7, 1954 in Hong Kong. He will be missed but not forgotten. Please show your sympathy and condolences by commenting on and liking this page."
Also, Global Associated News, a prankster site that reports false death news, claimed that the actor died while shooting for a film in Austria.

"Hi everybody! Yesterday, I got on a 3am flight from India to Beijing. I didn't get a chance to sleep and even had to clean my house when I got home. Today, everybody called to congratulate me on my rumored engagement. Afterward, everybody called me to see if I was alive. If I died, I would probably tell the world! I took a photo with today's date, just in case you don't believe me! However, thank you all for your concern. Kiss kiss and love you all!"
