Instagram 'Daredevil' Found Dead After Falling From Roof

A man who filmed himself doing 'daredevil' stunts for Instagram has died after failing from a building in New York, police have said.

Coe had reportedly been drinking with a friend the evening before he was found dead.


A neighbour, who called an ambulance after spotting the body, told the news outlet: "There was a beer can next to him. We just thought he was drunk."

Coe had shared a number of risky photos of himself on Instagram, including where his legs can be seen dangling over the side of tall building in Manhattan. In a clip he posted online he could be seen doing a backflip off a boat into the sea.

Tributes have poured in for Coe, with one friend writing: "You've left me some of the best memories - I'm so sad you won't be able to bless us with more. Rest easy my brother."

A spokesperson from Grubhub, where Coe worked as a growth-marketing associate, said: "We are deeply saddened by this news, and our thoughts are with Jackson's family and friends during this difficult time."

Ryker Gamble, Alexey Lyakh and Megan Scraper, who all vlogged for High On Life channel, were in Shannon Falls, Canada when tragedy struck.

According to the BBC, police said they died while swimming after they 'slipped and fell into a pool 30m below'.
