Rumors began to circulate on Twitter that the acclaimed stuntman had fallen off a 12-story roof while performing a stunt fora new movie.
And while Chan has frequently been injured performing stunts, even once fracturing his skull, the 59 year old actor is just fine this time.
Chan has already been the subject of several death hoaxes, including one just last month. On June 21, Chan posted to his personal website, announcing that he was not only alive but that, if he had "died, I would probably tell the world!"
