Youtube Star Dies On Accident

Tor Eckhoff, who went by Apetor on YouTube, had a tradition of posting clips on his birthday declaring he was not dead. In his latest video, he could be seen drinking shots of vodka, hanging out in an outdoor bathtub, kissing a tree, stomping around through some woods, and more, all with the number 57 written on his forehead. On Saturday, November 27th, just five days after sharing the video, Eckhoff fell through the ice on a Norwegian pond. Witnesses heard screams and called emergency services, who were able to find and rescue Tor, but he died at the hospital the next day. It is believed he was filming a video at the time of the accident. Tor’s partner, Tove Skjerven, told local paper Verdens Gang, “We miss him terribly much, and it is a loss that will never let go. He has been everything to me and to our son. Commenters also paid tribute to Eckhoff, writing beneath his final video things like, “We will never forget the joy you brought us! Warm thoughts to the family,” and, “Rest in peace, thanks for making everyone’s day better, Tor,” and “Thanks for all the joy you brought us. You will live forever.
