    Actor - Owen Wilson Dies In Snowboard Accident

    Actor Owen Wilson is reported to have died shortly after a snowboard accident earlier today - December 29, 2010.

    The actor & novice snowboarder was vacationing at the Zermatt ski resort in Zermatt, Switzerland with family and friends. Witnesses indicate that Owen Wilson lost control of his snowboard and struck a tree at a high rate of speed.

    Owen Wilson was air lifted by ski patrol teams to a local hospital, however, it is believed that the actor died instantly from the impact of the crash. The actor was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident and drugs and alcohol do not appear to have played any part in his death.

    Additional details and information will be updated as it becomes available. This story is still developing

    About Zermatt Ski Resort - While neighboring Gstaad is one of the world's top resorts with its three five-star hotels and St. Moritz is more popular, most rank Zermatt as Switzerland's top resort. A remarkably peaceful getaway, the village is peaceful thanks to its car-free environment. Amazingly picturesque, Zermatt holds the world's second biggest lift-served vertical drop and receives huge snowfalls thanks to its altitude

    Net news says it is reported.


    edit: Twitter is running amuck saying it is a "death hoax", like Charlie Sheen last week.

    Mmmm I'll wait for additional sources, especially given that his wikipedia page has been frozen to new users.

    If true that's really terrible, especially since he managed to pull through his suicide attempt.

    If there were any trees in Zermatt it might stand a chance.

    There are none. It's rock and glacier.

    Nah. After overdoing it on fondue he made the fatal swiss faux pas of using the toilet after 10pm, and the neighbors had no compassion.

    The good thing with Owen Wilson is if he did take a header into a tree there's still no way his nose could look any worse than it already does.
