Albert Dyrlund, a Danish YouTuber known for his music videos and comedy sketches, died Wednesday while filming a video in the Italian Alps. He was 22.
Dyrlund’s mother, Vibe Jørger Jensen, confirmed her son’s passing to Danish news outlet TV2 on Friday. She said he was filming a video for his channel in Forcella Pana when he fell 656 feet from a mountain, according to Newsweek. A rescue helicopter was reportedly called to the mountain, but it was sadly too late and Dyrlund was pronounced dead at the scene.
“We are in great grief, but I would like his fans to know,” Jensen told Newsweek, before requesting privacy for their family.
Fellow YouTuber Johnni Gade posted a heartfelt tribute in Dyrlund’s honor to his channel Friday, entitled, “Rip Albert Dyrlund.”
