Three YouTubers die after falling over a waterfall
Three members of a travel Youtube channel High On Life have died after falling over Shannon Falls in British Columbia, Canada.
The three, Ryker Gamble, Alexey Lyakh and Megan Scraper post videos of their travel adventures on Youtube.
“They slipped and fell into a pool 30m (98ft) below” Police said.
Other members of the group, who have 1.1 million followers on Instagram and more than 500,000 YouTube subscribers, named the three on their memorial fund page and in a tribute video.
They said: “There are truly no words that can be said to ease the pain and the devastation we are all going through right now.”
The accident happened when Scraper slipped and fell, with Gamble and Lyakh also getting swept away as they tried to save her, the Vancouver Sun reported.
The group said: “They were three of the warmest, kindest and most driven and outgoing people you could ever meet.”
High On Life are based in Vancouver and were formed by Gamble, Lyakh and another high school friend, Parker Heuser, after they travelled the world in 2012.
They decided to turn travel and video production into a full-time job and often promoted brands and destinations in the pictures and videos they posted from exotic locations.
Their Facebook page says: “High On Life is the attitude to embrace all of life’s opportunities with a positive outlook and energy.”
Followers of the group have received the news with shock as they pour in tributes under their posts on various social media platforms.
