The travel and vlogging communities are mourning a major loss as it has been revealed that three of the "High on Life" YouTube travel vloggers passed away after they slipped and fell during a hike at a Canadian waterfall. After a two-day recovery effort, the bodies of popular YouTubers Ryker Gamble and Alexey Lyakh were found, as well as Lyakh's girlfriend, Megan Scraper. The accident took place at Shannon Falls in British Columbia, Canada after the crew went on a hike.
The three were reportedly swimming in a pool atop the waterfall when Scraper slipped and fell. As the two men tried to help her back to safety, they also lost their footing and fell nearly 100 feet into a pool below them. The "High on Life" collective is a popular group of vloggers based in Vancouver, sharing their travel adventures for the world to see. Since the tragedy on July 3, the remaining members of the group have released a video to tribute the lives of Ryker, Alexey, and Megan.
In the video, the three were described as some of the "warmest, kindest, most driven and outgoing people that you could ever meet." Watch their video message below. RIP Ryker Gamble, Alexey Lyakh, and Megan Scraper.
