 Nelson Mandela death report 

Despite a social media rumor, Nelson Mandela is still alive. As previously reported, the 94-year-old South African leader is on life support after suffering from a recurring lung infection.

“Ailing former President Nelson Mandela is on life support in the Pretoria Heart Clinic where he has been fighting a recurrent lung infection since June 8,” South Africa’s The Citizen newspaper reported Wednesday on his health.

Twitter.com is currently being flooded with tweets extending condolences to Mandela’s family. There are also tweets incorrectly identifying Mandela as Morgan Freeman.
