VANCOUVER – Three Canadian YouTube ride vloggers were killed in an collision during Shannon Falls, roughly 40 miles from Vancouver, nearby a city of Squamish, British Columbia on Tuesday.

Ryker Gamble, Alexey Lyakh, and Megan Scraper were reportedly walking along a corner of a falls when they slipped and fell about 30 yards, according to a Squamish Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

“Squamish Search and Rescue (SAR), Lions Bay SAR, BC Ambulance, Squamish Fire, BC Parks, and Squamish RCMP attended to a stage in sequence to coordinate a hunt efforts,” Squamish RCMP pronounced in a Tuesday press release.

According to a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, witnesses pronounced they saw Gamble, 30, and Lyakh, 30, dive into a pool above a falls to save Scraper, 29, who fell from rocks during a tip and was carried by a clever current. But nothing of them survived.

The contingent was famous for a brave ride videos. In 2011, Gamble and Lyakh combined a YouTube vlog channel “High on Life” to showcase their performances of adventurous outside tricks and stunts during obvious locations.

And in 2016, a dual done headlines after walking off a designated trail in Yellowstone National Park to get closer to a famous Grand Prismatic Spring.


Last January, they were reportedly sentenced to 7 days in jail for violating manners during mixed U.S. inhabitant parks and criminialized from American open lands for 5 years, according to CBC.

“High on Life” has over half a million subscribers on YouTube, and over 1.1 million supporters on Instagram.

On Friday, a YouTube channel expelled a video tribute in memory of Gamble, Lyakh, and Scraper.

“High on Life” also started a fundraising debate to support a victims’ families’ losses “that come during an impossibly formidable time like this.”

In addition, a channel published a thoroughfare created by Gamble and Lyakh and speedy subscribers to use a hashtag #HOLInspired to share their thoughts on amicable media.

“What do we wish to do in your life? What creates we tick? What creates we feel awe? Don’t be misled into meditative that you’re ostensible to do anything. You are ostensible to do usually what we chose to do,” they wrote. “The universe is immeasurable and full of possibilities. Follow your bliss. Get out of your comfort zone. Stop looking for reasons because we can’t and demeanour for reasons because we can. And … if we can, we should.”
