Carlos Santana The Victim of False Death Reports

Fans of Carlos Santana can relax since reports of his death turned out to be a case of mistaken identity and a journalist jumping the gun by rushing to report the news.

The rumor of the guitar legend's death was sparked with Canadian Broadcasting Corporation journalist Chris Walker tweeting the news on Wednesday that Carlos Santana's body was found in a car. But it was soon discovered that it was another man by the same name and Walker removed the tweet and issued an apology.

The Santana camp was quick to reassure fans that Carlos was ok. They told fans via his website, "From Team Santana: Carlos is alive and well and enjoying his morning! Thank you all for your concern, but the reports of his passing are false."

The CBC journalist also set the record straight by tweeting "I unreservedly apologize for previous tweets regarding Carlos Santana. Wrong to rely on single source, and against CBC policy besides."
