For a period of 3 years, YouTuber Daniel Kyre served as a co-creator of Cyndago, a YouTube channel devoted to providing entertainment in the form of wacky videos and cleverly dark sketches. Within its short lifespan, Cyndago earned praise by Mark Fischbach, best known as Markiplier, who supported the channel and its creators, Daniel and friend Ryan Magee, when they made the move to Los Angeles to pursue a full-time YouTube career. Despite being seemingly happy and successful, on September 16th, 2015, Kyre was found in his room after an apparent suicide attempt. Near death, he was rushed to the hospital where it was found he suffered irreversible brain damage. Two days later, Kyre was taken off life support. The death of the young creator rocked the YouTube community, led to the closing of Cyndago and pushed Markiplier into a short hiatus from creating to regroup from the tragic loss.
