A widespread viral video has created a chaos in the township of Bengaluru. The video on WhatsApp claimed that nine students have died during the annual function of that reputed school in Bengaluru. Soon after the arrival of cheap and advanced messaging apps like WhatsApp, numerous rumours are seen to have spread.  Those rumours lack accuracy and details.

The 29-second video has been viral on the Internet for almost a month and displayed a framed aluminium structure falling down, trapping a grouping of kids who were performing on the stage during the annual function of Max Mueller School that took place at the Ambedkar stadium.

The massive circulation of that video had created a buzz regarding the matter. When asked the school administration about the incident, they had dismissed the accusation of deaths and confirmed of a mishap that did take place during the event.  They also clarified that one of the students had received minor injuries and one of the school teachers had been seriously injured and undergoing medical treatment.
