Three YouTube vloggers die falling over Canadian waterfall
By ABC FOX MT News Staff
Three Canadian travel vloggers died Tuesday in an accident on a Canadian waterfall.
Ryker Gamble, Alexey Lyakh and Megan Scraper were best known for their YouTube series, "High On Life."
The three died on Tuesday after Scraper slipped and fell down the waterfall, and the other two tried to rescue her but also fell to their deaths, according to the Vancouver Courier.
The three knew each other from high school and attracted a following on social media with their travel adventures, including 1.1 million followers on their Instagram, @highonlife.
The two men, Gamble and Lyakh, made headlines in 2016 when they were charged for posting photos of themselves walking on Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park. The Billings Gazette reports that the men were sentenced to a week of jail time for the Yellowstone incident, as well as other violations in Zion and Death Valley national parks.
The trio's friends have established a GoFundMe, hoping to raise $50,000 to start a legacy fund to donate to causes the three cared about.
