Take everything you read on 'darwinawards.com' with a huge grain of salt, as the vast majority of the stories on there are 100% false and made up. Something like this falls heavily into the 'full of crap' bin especially due to the date of the supposed story. After 9-11-2001, ANY story such as the one made up here would have gotten HEAVY international attention, yet not one single source can be found to back this claim up.
My conclusion? This is made up and not even remotely true.
