Three YouTube vloggers killed in waterfall accident

  • Numerous emergency personnel and vehicles have swarmed the parking lot at Shannon Falls Provincial Park

The message delivered by an unidentified member of the group says it's High on Life's responsibility to spread a message written by Ryker Gamble and Alexey Lyakh, who he says died on Tuesday with Megan Scraper.

According to Vancouver Sun, Scraper had slipped and as Gamble and Lyakh tried to save her, they were all swept away.

The victims were all in their 20s and 30s.

High On Life also provided a link to a memorial fund for the three, which has a goal of raising $100,000, or around R1.4 million. Their audience grew to over a million Instagram followers and nearly half-a-million subscribers to their YouTube channel.

The group said: "They were three of the warmest, kindest and most driven and outgoing people you could ever meet and the world has lost a great deal of light from the passing of our friends".

Lyakh and Gamble started High on Life with another childhood friend, Justis Price Brown and documented their travels online.

Catholic charity "looking into" baby trafficking case…
She said the committee had discovered that other babies were sold to people in different cities for 50,000-70,000 rupees. She said their inquiry had revealed that the couple got the child in May and took it to Sonebhadra.

"Squamish Search and Rescue (SAR), Lions Bay SAR, BC Ambulance, Squamish Fire, BC Parks, and Squamish RCMP attended to the scene in order to coordinate the search efforts", Squamish RCMP said in a Tuesday press release.

The trio were involved in a YouTube channel known for traveling the world.

In 2016, two out of the three adventurers, Gamble and Lyakh, were forced to apologise after they walked on a sensitive hot spring in Yellowstone National Park. Their lifelong bond eventually rose to success when they began travelling and compiling footage of their adventures, posting it for millions of viewers. The group also asked for fans to share how they were inspired by "High On Life's" travels. "Hope you find endless adventure now" and "May you have just an epic journey in heaven", were a couple of the comments to his last post. Her companions, Ryker Gamble and Alexey Lyakh, dove in to save her, but none of them were a match for the power of the rapids. Scraper said it was a life most people can only dream of.

"It's a handsome area but along with that comes some pretty severe terrain and unless people are educated, equipped, trained to access some of these areas, it has potential for great risk", Wilcox said.

Thousands were mourning yesterday on social media after the freak deaths of three adventurous young video bloggers who suffered fatal injuries after slipping in a powerful river above a waterfall in western Canada.
