Pete Frates, the man who inspired the viral "Ice Bucket Challenge," is back in the hospital "battling this beast ALS like a Superhero," according to a post from his family.
Earlier Monday morning, some reports suggested the former Boston College baseball player had passed away from the disease.
CORRECTION: Family friend of Peter Frates told me had passed at 32. He was wrong and I was doubly wrong to tweet it. Thank God I was wrong.— Mike Barnicle (@mikebarnicle) July 3, 2017
People began to offer condolences.
Frates' family set the record straight with a post on Facebook.
The 32-year-old father has been living with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, which is also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, since 2012, and through the famous Ice Bucket Challenge, raised more than $250 million for ALS research.
