It appears someone took the photo from the original article and created the hoax in order to drive web traffic to his/her website or did it for the fun of it.

The news media giants like CNN, Malaysian National News Agency, MSNBC, Reuters, Al-Jazeera, ABC, New York Times, China News Service and others, would have published this story if it was true.
