Grant Thompson, "The Kind of Random", Died While Paragliding

This past Monday night, July 29, Grant Thompson, creator, and star of the extremely popular YouTube Channel The King of Random was killed in a paragliding accident.

The following morning the 38-year-old's body was recovered near Sand Hollow State Park in Utah. This was after his family reported him missing after he failed to return from that paragliding trip.

Media outlets, such as TMZ and The Sun, have reported that there is a video of the accident that was recorded by a camera attached to Thompson's paramotor, which is a help to the local authorities investigation but has not been released due to its graphic nature.

However, and perhaps more importantly, members of his team at The Kind of Random channel put out their own video to honor the memory and legacy of their friend and cocreator and to thank him for his years of work.
