Student playing Clash of Clans hit by car not true

A fake news, hoax article is spreading over the internet through social networking sites saying that a 19-year old student from Manila, Philippines – while walking, at the same time playing Clash of Clans – was hit by a car with a drunken driver.

The article said, the victim with his friend are walking on a sidewalk when a rushing car hit the victim. It added that the victim was concentrating on the game and was not able to avoid the rushing car.

However, photo used for the article is a photo of a South Korean national who jumped to death from the 24th floor of his residential tower last March this year.

The South Korean, according to police report, jumped from the tower after becoming depressed of being unemployed for about three year. The Korean was also found drunk.
