Allegedly, Vic Richards’ death may or may not have been first reported by Andreas Cahling in a Facebook post(see screencap below). In any case, everyone else subsequently reported that Vic Richards had died. A day later, his daughter may or may not have intervened to set the record straight and declare her father alive. But who knows anything at this point?
Apparently, this is a message from his daughter to Generation Iron:
“I’M PLEASED TO ASSURE YOU THAT MY FATHER IS IN FACT ALIVE AND WELL. AN INACCURATE FACEBOOK POST HAS CAUSED A WILDFIRE OF FALSE INFORMATION THROUGHOUT SOCIAL MEDIA AND NEWS OUTLETS. THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR CONCERN, MY FAMILY APPRECIATES ALL OF THE LOVE THE BODYBUILDING COMMUNITY HAS SHOWN TO MY DAD.”

The first Youtube video posted about what was then thought to be Vic Richards’ demise.
