Three adventurer YouTubers die in Canada waterfall plunge

Gamble, fellow adventure travel blogger Alexey Andriyovych Lyakh and his girlfriend Megan Scraper were known for their "High on Life SundayFundayz" YouTube group.

Gamble's cousin Rob Mangelsdorf said Thursday the 30-year-old volunteered as a boxing coach for youth, raised money and worked with orphans in Uganda after his mother set up a school there.

Ryker Gamble was a founder of the High on Life Youtube channel that has nearly 500,000 subscribers, and the High on Life Instagram account with more than 1.1 million followers.

Gamble, 30, and Lyakh may have died trying to save Scraper - who was the first to fall, the Vancouver Courier reported. "They were inseparable, absolutely inseparable their whole lives".

Canadian police did not give out any names when announcing the accident, but it's now confirmed that Gamble, Lyakh, and Scraper were the victims. Search and rescue teams, and helicopter units were last week called in order to recover the bodies, as the "extremely difficult" and "very dangerous" terrain and heavy water flow made the recovery effort risky.

Squamish RCMP said the trio, in their late 20s and early 30s, were swimming in one of the icy pools that form part of Shannon Falls, a 335-metre waterfall about 60 kilometres north of Vancouver. The three were then swept by the current and plummeted about 100 feet into the waterfall's lower pool.

The group used social media to document their travels, often spiking the footage with high-octane stunts of outdoor daring.

Three YouTube and Instagram travel vloggers died on Tuesday after falling over a waterfall in Canada.

In September 2016 Gamble, Lyakh, and two other friends Justis Cooper Price-Brown and Hamish McNab Campbell faced charges for vandalizing Yellowstone National park by dipping their hands into the Grand Prismatic Springs - the largest hot spring in the United States that is off limits to visitors.

"On July 3rd, 2018 we lost 3 very dear friends of ours; Ryker Gamble, Alexey Lyakh, and Megan Scraper", the page reads.

Last year, Gamble, Lyakh and another High on Life member, Justis Price Brown, pleaded guilty to walking on a sensitive hot spring in Yellowstone National Park and other crimes at parks in the western United States, the Courier reported. They were ordered to pay fines and served a week in jail.
