Don't worry -- Steven Irwin's daughter, Bindi Irwin, is alive and well. Despite a jumbled Internet search term making its way to the top of hot search terms on Friday, suggesting that the the 14-year-old daughter of the "Crocodile Hunter" has died, the teen is A-OK.
On Friday, a rumor on Twitter started that Bindi had died and became a popular term on various search engines, according to Social News Daily. The site called the situation a "trends hiccup," as the phrase "Bindi Irwin died" then became a popular term on various search engines.
The site reports that searches including "Steve Irwin daughter" got mixed in with the death hoax searches, making some to believe the teen actually did die.
According to Huffington Post, as people searched for information on Irwin's daughter (her new movie Return to Nim's Island was released on DVD May 21), search engines matched up the query with stories written about her following the 2006 death of her father. The searches then combined, creating the trending term: "Steve Irwin's daughter dies."
The environmentally-conscious teen seems to be unfazed with the trending topic in her name, Instagramming a photo on Friday of the beach with the words "Unconditional Love" written in the sand.
Her father, a famous TV personality who made a name for himself as a wildlife expert and conservationist -- in addition to wrestling crocodiles -- died in September 2006 at the age of 44 after being pierced in the chest by a sting ray.
