National Geographic Fans Panic

On a Reddit community dedicated to the show, one fan of Life Below Zero admits they had a heart attack after seeing reports Susan had passed away.

“I almost had a heart attack when I was looking up LBZ stuff this morning. And there were some articles saying she passed away in March of this year. I looked that up specifically and I found some articles she died of undisclosed reasons and other articles (mostly these) saying that no, she is in fact alive.”

What really had the OP scratching their head was why so many outlets are reporting she died in March. Did something happen that inspired these rumors? Other fans chimed in that they were just as relieved, but also confused about these rumors.
