Does a death video showing Hawaiian surfing champion Kalani David drowning really exist?!
Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!
Claim : Here Is The Kalani David Death Video!
A number of rumour / fake news websites have been capitalising on Hawaiian surfing prodigy, Kalani David, who tragically died out on the ocean.
They are claiming that they have the video of how he died, posting on YouTube
Truth : There Is No Kalani David Death Video!
This is another example of FAKE NEWS that some websites create for more page views and money, and here are the reasons why…
Fact #1 : Kalani David Drowned While Practicing
Kalani David suffered epileptic seizures while surfing off the coast of Costa Rica, and drowned.
He was practicing on his own, and not competing in a competition. So there would not have been any video cameras to capture his death.
Fact #2 : Kalani David Death Videos Are All Fake
A number of these websites created fake YouTube videos with misleading titles, claiming to show Kalani David’s death. Terribly ghoulish and insensitive, if you ask me.
Fortunately – they are ALL fake, if you click and watch those videos. And why not? There is currently no evidence that anyone actually witnessed Kalani drowning after he suffered seizures on the waves, much less recorded it on video.
Yes, it is possible that Kalani David was surfing with other people, and someone may have been recording the session.
But even if someone actually recorded Kalani David’s death on video (instead of rushing to help), he/she would have provided the video to the Costa Rica police, and it would have been held as evidence as they are still investigating his death.
Fact #3 : Title Screens Are Intentionally Misleading
To mislead you, these fake video creators used misleading screenshots of Kalani David from years earlier, or in one case – a May 2014 photo of surfers at Salsa Brava.
The photos showing Kalani David in a hospital bed are from his August 2016 seizure, and either his December 2016 heart operation, or someone who looks like him.
It is important to note that Kalani David drowned in the ocean. He never made it to the hospital. So these are fake title screens to lure you into clicking.
To be clear – there is no video footage of Kalani David drowning.
Fact #4 : None Of Them Offered Any Evidence
No reputable media outlet even mentioned that his death was witnessed, much less recorded on video for our ghoulish entertainment.
Yet, these no-name websites out of India and Pakistan somehow managed to get their grubby little hands on the “death video” of Kalani David?
None of those websites claiming to show the Kalani David death video offered anything remotely close to “evidence”. Their articles will mention “death video” for SEO reasons, but offer nothing else.
