Following a seven-hour cardiac procedure, a YouTube star named Sir Kipsta died.
Alex Dragomir, also known as Sir Kipsta, started his YouTube channel to vlog his reactions to football matches and later used it to tell about his stay in hospital.
He was 17 years old.
Alex kept his followers up to date on his health by posting videos from his hospital bed on Facebook and YouTube.
He thanked his supporters for their support on June 5 and informed them, “I’m going to give it my best shot and I won’t let nothing stop me.”
Teachers from his former school, Cockshut Hill in Birmingham, were among those who paid tribute after learning of his death, expressing their “great sadness” at the news. They said, “Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends at this difficult and sad time,”
Others have paid their tribute to an “absolute legend” on Twitter and YouTube.
How Did Sir Kipsta Die? (Death Cause)
Alex heartbreakingly posted just before his operation yesterday June, 10 that he might not survive the surgery.
Going in for a life saving procedure if it don’t work then it’s been a great time people thank you for all you’ve done for me but we pray we see it through and we pray we get fatter and fitter after it for them to see progress and not say they can’t do anything after surgery
Alex’s sister wrote on his Twitter account in the early hours of this morning (June 11). She wrote, “Hello, as you all might already know my brother passed away today, he had a very hard operation which lasted 7 hours but his heart couldn’t take it anymore, he was too weak to survive. Heaven gained another angel.”
“He was my rock my everything. RIP Alex.”
She immediately followed up with another tweet that read, “Thank you so much to those who supported Alex thru his hospital journey you all been so amazing!
“You all kept him going gave him the energy to carry on! All the messages kept his head up. He carried on due to all the nice support he had from twitter.”
