Steve Irwin - Bindi Irwin Falls Victim To Bizarre Death Hoax

The actress daughter of tragic conservationist Steve Irwin is alive and well after a technology glitch on Friday (14Jun13) incorrectly suggested she had died.

Bindi Irwin became the talk of Twitter.com after a search engine issue seemingly combined users' requests for information about the release of the 14 year old's latest film, Return to Nim's Island, with reports of her father's death in 2006, resulting in the trending phrase: "Steve Irwin's daughter dies."

However, the rumours proved to be false - the Crocodile Hunter's eldest child subsequently posted a photo of a beach on her Instagram.com page on Friday with the words "unconditional love" carved out in the sand.

Steve Irwin died at the age of 44 after he was pierced in the chest by a stingray barb.
