ORLANDO (FOX 13) -

A social media hoax caused quite the confusion at Universal Studios over the weekend.

Reports of a roller coaster accident spread like wildfire. It said 16 people had died and it cited Fox News as its source. The problem was none of it was true.

A similar hoax popped up last month.

Social media websites are warning users to not click on the story if they see it on their news feeds. It could contain a virus.
