California TikTok star Cooper Noriega, who boasted nearly two million followers, has reportedly died Thursday, mere hours after uploading an eerie TikTok video about dying young. He was 19 years old.

The tragic news broke after a samaritan called emergency services after finding the influencer unconscious in the parking lot of a mall near Los Angeles, according to TMZ. Despite arriving on the scene shortly thereafter, the paramedics were unable to resuscitate Noriega.

Unfortunately, the star’s cause of death remains unclear as he was not in a vehicle and did not display any signs of physical trauma while officers do not suspect any foul play. The body is slated for an autopsy so authorities can glean more details surrounding his mysterious death, TMZ reported.

Just hours before his death, Noriega uploaded a video about dying young.

The heartbreaking news broke just hours after Noriega posted a video of himself lying in bed with the caption, “who else b thinking they gon d! € young af.”

Ahead of his passing, the young star announced on Instagram on June 4 that he was starting a “discord for mental health strictly.”

“I’ve been struggling with addiction since I was 9 years old, you may think that’s crazy but that’s the life I’ve been dealt with,” he wrote in the emotional post. “I would like to use the influence I’ve been given to create a space built on spreading awareness and normalizing talking about mental illness.”

At the time of his death, the social media sensation boasted 1.7 million TikTok followers and 95.7 million likes, as well as over 427,000 followers on Instagram. He was best known for posting lip sync videos and short sketches.

In his last video before he died, which boasted over 1.2 million views, the entertainer showed snippets from his recent June 1 appearance on the podcast “Barstool’s BFFs” with Dave Portnoy, Josh Richards & Bri Chickenfry.

Ahead of his passing, Noriega posted an emotional message in which he claimed to have struggled with "addiction."

“I’m heartbroken and can’t imagine how his family and friends are feeling,” wrote one crestfallen commenter, while another said, “Plz someone tell me it’s not true he’s not actually gone.”

Another commented on the dying young video. “The fact that he posted this couple of hours ago and now his dead ??” they wrote. “This really breaks my heart .. RIP angel.”

Meanwhile, Barstool’s BFFs mourned the star’s passing on Twitter. “Devastating news. RIP Cooper Noriega, ”they wrote. “Life is fragile. Enjoy every minute. ”

Noriega’s passing marks the latest in a string of TikTok star deaths this year. In January, 36-year-old TikTokker Candice Murley mysteriously died several days after claiming that the “voices in her head had gone silent.”

Meanwhile, Barstool’s BFFs mourned the star’s passing on Twitter. “Devastating news. RIP Cooper Noriega, ”they wrote. “Life is fragile. Enjoy every minute. ”
