Three YouTube vloggers killed in waterfall accident

A travel vlogger for popular channel High On Life, Gamble was one of three people who were confirmed dead on Thursday by federal police, the Associated Press reports.

It's understood Scraper slipped into the falls at some point, where there was a strong current, and Gamble and Lyakh jumped in to save her.

The group said on the page: "There are truly no words that can be said to ease the pain and the devastation that their families are all going through right now".

The group has also asked fans to share social posts showing how High On Life inspired them using the hashtag #HOLinspired, which they say they will use to "collect all of your love and thoughts in one place".

In the video, the three were described as some of the "warmest, kindest, most driven and outgoing people that you could ever meet".

Underwater dive teams recovered their bodies the next day in one of the lower pools, the outlet reported.

A team of local authorities are searching for three people who have slipped and fallen from the top of Shannon Falls near Squamish, B.C. into a pool 30-metres below. In 2016 their exploits made worldwide news after they were charged with damaging sensitive habitat in Yellowstone Park.

Lyakh and Gamble started High on Life with another childhood friend, Justis Price Brown and documented their travels online.

Shannon Falls is the third tallest waterfall in BC at almost 1,100 feet.

According to CTVNews, the three were in a group of seven hikers who were visiting the falls.

The group has run in to trouble for their dare-devil antics.

Two years ago, Gamble and Lyakh were sentenced to seven days in prison in the US and "banned from accessing USA public lands for five years" after they were accused of taking photos at a protected hot springs at Yellowstone National Park, Vice News reported.

Gamble and Lyakh pleaded guilty to heading off the walkway at the park and onto the Grand Prismatic Spring.

In a subsequent apology they spoke of being drawn to a natural wonder.

"We acted in a way that doesn't reflect our respect for the environment we were trying to capture", Gamble told CBC News at the time.
