New York Giants fans were in a fluster Tuesday after rumors began swirling that Giants' quarterback Eli Manning had been found dead.

Frantic football fans began filling Internet blog and social media sites questioning whether the news was true and trying to find out more information. However, after hours of fearful fans waiting for official news finally new reports emerged disposing of the rumors and stating that they were completely fabricated; Eli Manning was alive and well.

According to earlier reports from mediafetcher.com, State Highway Patrol officers allegedly found pro football player Eli Manning unresponsive in a 2009 Cadillac Escalade on Tuesday morning at a New York highway rest area.

The alleged report added that emergency services were quickly dispatched to the incident, and despite numerous attempts at CPR could not bring Manning back.

However, the report appears to have simply been an elaborate attention-seeking scam and hoax. At the bottom of the report the website revealed that the entire story was made up.

"This story was dynamically generated using a generic 'template' and is not factual," says the website. "Any reference to specific individuals has been 100% fabricated by web site visitors who have created fake stories by entering a name into a blank 'non-specific' template for the purpose of entertainment."

Mediafetcher is well-known for making up celebrity deaths and other pranks; the website has also "killed off" actors Owen Wilson, Keanu Reeves, Will Smith, and Eddie Murphy among others in the past.
