Ryker Gamble, Alexey Lyakh and Megan Scraper have passed away after an accident at Shannon Falls near Vancouver, Canada.
The trio were involved in a YouTube channel known for traveling the world.
Gamble and Lyakh were core members of the ‘High on Life’ YouTube brand that had over 500,000 subscribers and 1 million followers on Instagram. Scraper was involved in the channel as well, but had her own travel business.
The three were swimming in a pool system in Shannon Falls when a slip caused them to fall 30 meters.
Cpl. Sascha Banks, a member of the National Police Force of Canada, warned travelers of that area in the aftermath of the YouTuber’s deaths:
“It looks beautiful, it’s a sunny day, but given the extensive water flow that comes off the mountains, and the number of incidents that we’ve had in the Squamish area lately, people just need to be prepared.”
“Unless you have the knowledge of that area, the expertise and the right equipment you should not be up there.”
Gamble and Lyakh have been making videos together since they were in high school, while Lyakh and Scraper were dating for about 5 years.
A GoFundMe has been set up in their honor and will be used “support causes that align with the values and aspirations of Ryker, Alexey and Megan,” according to High on Life.
The remaining members of High on Life released a heartfelt video in honor of their friends. The video contains a reading of a passage written by Gamble and Lyakh, which you can watch below.
