The image is not of Paul Walker. Let’s first take a look at the photo and story being circulated.

The photo allegedly of Walker
The image below shows an injured man in a hospital bed, along with a “news” story that the actor’s reps “confirmed that Paul Walker is not dead.”

The image is not of Walker and the story is from a fictional website called Mediamass. Walker’s reps have in fact confirmed that the actor died on November 30.

There is also a video alleging to show Walker denying his death reports. For that story, see: Hoax: Paul Walker Video Claiming to Show Actor Denying His Death Reports

The Real Photo
The photo in question is several years old and shows a man who was injured in an accident while cutting bricks.

Mediamass
Mediamass posts the same fictional articles about hundreds of celebrities. An existing “death hoax” article on the site led to confusion in the initial hours after the actor’s death, and led some to inaccurately claim that a suspicous “death hoax” for the actor circulated hours before his death. No such hoax circulated, as those readers found the fake Mediamass “death hoax” work of fiction.

Bottom Line
The photo circulating is not of Paul Walker, and the story accompanying the photo is fiction.
