Three YouTube vloggers die in Canada waterfall plunge

Numerous emergency personnel and vehicles have swarmed the parking lot at Shannon Falls Provincial Park

Montreal: Thousands were mourning Friday on social media after the freak deaths of three adventurous young video bloggers who suffered fatal injuries after slipping in a powerful river above a waterfall in western Canada.

High On Life is described as a clothing and outdoor adventure company whose members are known for creating lively travel video from all over the world.

It says Gamble and Lyakh wrote about living in the present, being free of the past or whatever is to come, and giving of one's time and energy to what really matters.

Gamble and Lyakh, along with friend Parker Heuser, produced a popular Youtube channel called High on Life.

"Every year seems to be busier and busier", he said.

Police and rescue crews are working to overcome unsafe conditions as they try to recover the bodies of three swimmers from Shannon Falls near Squamish. "At around 8:30 PM [on Tuesday] night teams were able to confirm the location of the three people in one of the lower pools".

"Areas like Shannon Falls have very polished granite, it's very slippery with the mist and the lichen and etcetera that builds up around there-going in or near those pools has great risk", John Wilcox of Squamish Search and Rescue told radio station News 1130 Wednesday.

Gamble and Lyakh attempted to save her but they also fell and got swept into the currents, according to the Vancouver Sun.

RCMP say the three people were swimming in one of the pools on Tuesday afternoon at the top of Shannon Falls with a group of friends when they slipped and fell into a pool 30 metres below. Sascha Banks of the RCMP warned in a statement following the tragic accident.

The hikers' identities haven't been released, but police confirmed they were all in their 20s or early 30s, and they were all B.C. residents.

The area is accessible from the Sea-to-Sky Gondola and by hiking trails in the provincial park, but Sascha said the area can be risky.

"We've had a number of dogs that have gone into the water, and people that have slipped into the water as well".

"Unless you have knowledge and the right equipment you should not be up there", she said.

A statement from the Squamish RCMP explains that the terrain is still immensely risky. They fell the equivalent of 10 stories, officials said.

All three went to McRoberts, where they routinely scored top marks for using videos for assignments.
