Content Creator Kubra Dogan Passed Away Trying to Record TikTok Video
Promising TikToker Kubra Dogan wanted to catch a spectacular sunset at a rooftop in Istanbul, but destiny had a heartbreaking plan prepared for her.
TikTok’s popularity has been on the rise for years as more and more young people are joining the platform. Kubra Dogan, a 23-year-old content creator, was one of them.
In mid-August, Dogan visited her 16-year-old cousin Helen and her family in Istanbul, Turkey, for what was supposed to be a fun weekend getaway.
Even after Helen's parents advised them otherwise, Dogan and Helen went to the rooftop of the family’s apartment to shoot some videos for TikTok as they wanted to catch the beautiful sunset.
While Helen was recording, Dogan stepped onto what seemed like a grey plastic covering that ripped off immediately. Unfortunately, the TikToker fell nine stories to her death.
Although the family contacted the emergency services right away, Dogan had already died. Dogan’s uncle said they would sue the contractor in charge of installing the plastic cover and added:
“We will not let [the contractor] go. As soon as the girl puts her foot down, [the panel] breaks and she falls to the ground from the ninth floor.”
Unfortunately, Dogan is not the only TikToker who died young this year. Timothy Hall, better known as Timbo the Redneck, passed away in a car accident.
Not everything about TikTok this year has been bad news.
His mother revealed that he went to a friend’s house to perform some tricks with his truck, but the vehicle flipped, and he died. He was just 18 years old.
Anthony Barajas’ case was different. The social media personality was with a friend at a cinema in Corona, California, when Joseph Jimenez shot them. Barajas, 19, and his friend, 18, were pronounced dead at the scene.
The most shocking aspect of the crime was that the attack was “completely unprovoked,” and Jimenez hadn’t had any prior contact with the victims.
Not everything about TikTok this year has been bad news, fortunately. TikTok user Seattle Tech Bro confessed his viewers advised him to have a medical check-up after noticing what they suspected were cancer symptoms.
He listened, visited the doctor, and found that his thyroid, which looked larger than usual, had a “95 percent chance” of being cancerous. Social media can also save lives!
