Death can be a fun topic, especially when the person really isn't dead. The Daily Mail reported that the dead girl on Google Maps everyone is buzzing about is really not dead, she was just playing.

You can see the dead girl on Google Maps at http://goo.gl/maps/Zwhz and here is a screen grab:

Dead Girl Stat on Google Maps

She isn't dead, she is a ten-year old girl from the UK named Azura Beebeejaun. The Google Maps dead girl is now a living star.

Honestly, I don't see the big deal here. I remember playing this prank on teachers during recess but hey, Google Maps is a much wider audience. Find more coverage of this news on Techmeme.
