No Evidence Ty Wells Died From Vaccine OR Motorcycle Accident!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all athlete deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

And “death blogs” quickly jump onto the craze by quickly creating obituaries or articles that wrongly attribute the cause of death of these athletes or celebrities.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists / “death blogs”, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Ty Wells Death Circumstances + Cause Still Unknown

Ty Wells was a native of Ripon, California, and a 2021-2022 CSCAA Scholar All-American who competed in the 2022 US Open Championships.

He was a four-year member of the University of Arizona’s men swim team, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in Health Sciences & Physiology in May 2022, with plans to pursue a career in physical therapy or sports medicine.

Ty Wells sadly passed away on Friday morning, January 27, 2023. However, the circumstances and cause of Ty Wells’ death is still currently unknown.

His school confirmed the news on Instagram on Monday evening, January 30, but did not mention a cause of death. A GoFundMe was set up for his family, but also did not mention a cause of death.

We are deeply saddened by the loss of recent alum Ty Wells, who passed away on Friday.

Our heartfelt condolences are with his family, his friends and the entire @arizonaswimdive family.

His home club, Ripon Aquatics, emailed its team on Monday about his death, but also did not mention a cause of death.

As many of you may have heard by now, our team family lost a beloved friend with the passing of Ty Wells on Friday morning.

It is impossible to articulate in a short letter the impact Ty Wells had on our community. I trust as we grieve, celebrate, and remember Ty, he will be properly honored.

Over the past few days, I’ve heard him described as an “angel on earth,” “the brightest smile in the room,” “the warmest hug I’ve ever been given,” and “the best version of all of us.” For me…I have seen few people love so fiercely, consistently, and unapologetically the way Ty did as a friend, brother, son, and teammate.

Until and unless his family reveals his cause of death, it would be wrong for anyone to claim that Ty Wells died from COVID-19 vaccine SADS, or a motorcycle accident.

He could have died from any number of reasons – stroke, cardiac arrest, heart attacksuicide, accidents, cancer, etc.

Fact #2 : Ty Wells Cause Of Death Is Being Investigated

The Arizona Medical Examiner is currently working to determine the cause of death for Ty Wells.

Until his autopsy is completed, and the results announced, it would be wrong for anyone to claim that Ty Wells died from COVID-19 vaccine SADS, or any other cause of death!

Fact #3 : Motorcycle Accident Involved A Different Ty Wells

“Death blogs” that claim that Ty Wells died from a motorcycle accident have apparently scraped that information from an April 2022 GoFundMe page of a different Ty Wells.

While they both share the same name, this Ty Wells hails from Los Angeles, not Ripon. Not only did the motorcycle accident happen in April 2020 –  almost 9 months earlier, the other Ty Wells did not die from his motorcycle accident.

We are raising money for Ty in this time of tragic circumstance. All money from this fund will directly support the cost of current and future medical bills, living expenses, accessibility resources, and whatever else Ty may need on the road to recovery. Please donate if you are able.

On April 3, 2022 our Ty Wells endured a motorcycle accident that has put them in the hospital. Ty is currently being treated at LAC+USC.

Please keep them in your thoughts and send all the strength and good energy.

This page has been created with the blessing of the family. We will keep this page up to date on the status of Ty’s recovery.

One “death blog” called even had the temerity to misuse the infamous photo of Tyre Nichols lying in the hospital bed as a photo of Ty Wells. Tyre Nichols was the young father who was beaten to death in Memphis by five police officers.

Another “death blog” called claimed that Ty Wells died in a motorcycle accident. However, the obituary they posted referred to a Ty Wells from Tucson, Arizona.

Fact #4 : University Of Arizona Never Had A Vaccine Mandate

Some of those who blame the COVID-19 vaccine for Ty Wells’ death claim that the University of Arizona has a vaccine mandate, that is not true. The University of Arizona never mandated the COVID-19 vaccine, not even in 2021-2022.

COVID-19 vaccines are safe, effective, and our best shot at getting back to normal.

Anyone 12 years and older can get vaccinated. The University is not requiring that students get vaccinated. However, the University strongly encourages vaccination to protect yourself and the community.

Fact #5 : Unknown If Ty Wells Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

It is unknown if Ty Wells was ever vaccinated against COVID-19, so it would be wrong for anyone to claim that he died from COVID-19 vaccine side effects.

For all we know – he may not even be vaccinated! There is no vaccine mandate at the University of Arizona, and the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

For example, anti-vaccination activists claimed that Kaden Clymer was almost crippled by a 6-foot long vaccine-induced blood clot, but the high school athlete was never vaccinated against COVID-19!

Unless his family reveals his vaccination status, anyone who tells you that CJ Harris was fully-vaccinated and died from the vaccine is likely lying to you.

Fact #6 : Claims Of Athletes Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

So far, claims of athlete deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance. Here is the latest dozen cases I fact checked recently.

Will these anti-vaccination activists apologise for lying to you? Nope! They will just move on to the next athlete tragedy…
