YouTube Star Roman Atwood's Mother Dies in Tragic Accident on Vacation

Roman Atwood has announced the devastating news that his mother passed away in a tragic accident on a family vacation.

The 36-year-old YouTube star, who was on a vacation with his family to celebrate his birthday this week, updated fans with an emotional statement on social media.

“As most of you know, my family and I are on vacation together. Yesterday, my mom was riding around with my nephew on some little scooters. She fell off hers and hit her head. She immediately lost all vitals,” Roman wrote in his statement. “No heart rate and her breathing stopped. She was rushed to the hospital where she spent the next 8 hours…my beautiful mother passed away shortly after.”

“I need everyone to understand that I will be gone for a bit. I will be by my family’s side especially my fathers. We are rushing back home to Ohio to figure everything out. Please pray for my family and especially for my father,” he continued. “I’ve never been more in shock in my life. I’m numb and in complete disbelief. My heart is so heavy. We are all broken over here. Mom was everything to us.”

Roman was among the top 10 highest-earning stars on YouTube back in 2016.

We send our thoughts and condolences to the Atwood family during this difficult time.
