NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Thursday was a big day for mayor Bill de Blasio.

After all, it's the day he announced that he's entering the crowded field of Democratic presidential candidates -- that's enough of a milestone.

BUT it seems Google thinks otherwise: When "Bill de Blasio" is entered in the Google search bar, a brief biography of the mayor comes up, including his basic vitals -- and apparently his date of death! (see below)

"Died: May 16, 2019," reads his bio. As of 7 p.m., it remained there, and had been for a few hours. 

Fear not, New Yorkers: Our mayor is alive and well. If you need proof, the photo above was taken Thursday too.
