A fourth-generation farmer named Caitlyn Loane, who posted popular TikTok clips capturing his action-packed rural lifestyle, took his own life at. 19 after posting a haunting last video.
“Words cannot describe our loss,” Loane’s family in Australia said in a statement on their daughter’s death by suicide, the Daily Mail reported.
A trailblazer for women in agriculture, the young cowgirl had worked as a livestock manager on her parents’ 600-acre cattle ranch in Tasmania, which Loane planned to run when she was older, news.com.au reported. The country gal documented her daily routine – which ranges from treating sick heifers to showcasing her latest country couture ̵

The haunting final video before Loane died, which currently boasts over 170,000 views, featured a photo montage of the groundbreaking farmer’s life set to a song that asked “how far would you drive for your dream girl?” In the caption, she wrote “what about Tasmania?”
Loane’s family said they were devastated by her loss.
“She was a lovely, crazy young woman who was an invaluable member of our family,” said her bereaved father, Phillip Loane.
The teenager’s mother Richele said the daughter’s “smile lit up the room” and that she “was not afraid to get her hands dirty.”
Just this past month, Loane opened up about his agricultural career path to TasWeekend during Agfest Tasmania, where the youngster supervised young cattle judges, the Daily Mail reported.
“In 2018, I realized the school was not giving me the skills and experience I needed, so I applied to Sunday Creek Cattle Station in the Northern Territory so I could gain experience and learn more,” Loane said at the time. “Up there, the properties are huge, and the patterns with helicopters and on horseback.”

“Oh, how my heart hurts to know that you have left us all, the bright, bubbly, beautiful but crazy girl,” a bereaved classmate wrote on Facebook. “I will never forget the good moments and memories we have together.”
A local sports club to which Loane belonged also praised: “It is with deep sadness and regret that Devonport Football Club recognizes the sudden passing of one of our female players, Caitlyn Loane.”
