What was Tor’s cause of death?
Eckhoff’s death was confirmed by his partner Tove Skjerven, in a heartbreaking Facebook post.
“My dearest Tor. Friday the 26th. November was just a regular Friday,” she recalled. “You went to a water near Kongsberg, and you looked forward to skating. You should also film a little, which you should use in a video on YouTube.
“You messaged me when you arrived, with pictures of yourself and the water. Nice relationship, you wrote but something went horribly wrong. You ended up in the ice water, and this time you didn’t get back up, like you did so many times before!
“In the end, you were picked up by divers and sent by air ambulance to Ullevål hospital.”
“They did everything they could to bring you back to life, but you had been underwater for too long.
Eckhoff reportedly passed away while filming a YouTube video demonstrating his skills on ice sheets.
He ended up falling in and despite being rushed to the nearby hospital after locals heard his cries of distress, he died from his injuries.
