This past Tuesday, three YouTubers died in a waterfall swim gone wrong. Alexey Lyakh, Ryker Gamble, and Megan Scraper are vloggers from the High On Life YouTube travel channel, died in an accident at Canda’s Shannon Falls. It is not clear if the trio was filming at the time of the accident.
According to Time Magazine, “Gamble and Lyakh, both 30, were apparently trying to rescue Scraper, 2, who had slipped and was drawn into fast-moving water.” The Royal Canadian Mounted Police confirmed this past Thursday that three people were swimming in one of the pools at the top of Shannon Falls when they slipped and fell into a pool about 100 feet below.
However, High On Life posted a tribute video that identified the vloggers by name. Members of the page also set up a GoFundMe page to raise money for the victims’ families. High On Life is also asking all viewers to submit memories and stories about how Gamble, Lyakh, and Scraper inspired fellow travelers.
