Will Ferrell, RIP?

My coworker just forwarded this to me:

Los Angeles -- Actor Will Ferrell accidentally died in

a freak para-gliding accident yesterday in Torey Pines,

Southern California. The accident apparently happened

somewhere near the famed paragliding site after a freak

wind gush basically blew Ferrell and his companion

towards a wooded area where they lost control before

crashing into the dense foilage.

I can't find any other mentions of it anywhere. Hoax? What's going on? One would think the MSM would be all over this were it true. I hope Will Ferrell is not dead, but who knows.

UPDATE: The story is no longer on the above link. Clearly a fake. Jerks.

i-Newswire is the only place listed on Google that had the article, and it now says:
"(I-Newswire) - The content of this press release was removed or moved to another location. Please use our search function to search for the new location or enter a search string to find similar items."

I may be wrong, but I'm guessing it's a false report.

ferrel claims he's still alive... but should we believe him... of COURSE he'd say that.

I suspect it's a political ploy and he plans to run for office in 2006 and wants to appear "alive".
