Playing YouTubers Who Died in Waterfall Plunge Were Inspired by ‘Jackass’ Movie

A tragic waterfall accident has led to the death of three popular travel vloggers

"High on Life" YouTube stars Ryker Gamble, Alexey Lyakh and Lyakh’s girlfriend, Megan Scraper, were killed Tuesday as the three were on their latest adventure in Canada. 

At the time, the group was visiting Shannon Falls, Canada's third-highest waterfall, which is located in British Columbia. 

Reports say the trio was at the top pool of the waterfall when Scraper slipped and fell.

Gamble and Lyakh rushed over, but were unable to rescue her. The three were then swept by the current and plummeted about 100 feet into the waterfall’s lower pool. All three were killed in the fall.

Gamble and Lyakh founded "High on Life," along with a friend, Parker Heuser. The travel channel has more than 501,000 subscribers and over one million followers on Instagram. 

The friends vlog about their travels around the world and have been to places such as Bali, Thailand, Greece, Italy, Vietnam, Hungary and Croatia. 

Members of the channel gathered to make a video to address the accident, remembering their dear friends. 

“There are truly no words that can be said to ease the pain and the devastation that we are all going through right now,” the group said in the video. "They were three of the warmest, kindest, most driven and outgoing people that you could ever meet and the world has lost a great deal of light with their passing."

In the video, a passage written by both Gamble and Lyakh was read aloud as the group tried to hold back tears

“... Follow your bliss, get out of your comfort zone, stop looking for reasons why you can’t and start looking for reasons why you can and if you can, you should."

The group has asked for inspirational messages, videos and photos under the hashtag #HOLInspired to allow fans to express their condolences and thoughts. 

GoFundMe page has also been set up for the families of Gamble, Lyakh and Scraper.
