Three YouTubers Die In Tragic Waterfall Drop

The three are a part of YouTube channel High On Life SundayFundayz which posts exotic travel and adventure videos.

In a video tribute the group praised them as "three of the warmest, kindest and most driven and outgoing people you could ever meet".

"There are truly no words that can be said to ease the pain and the devastation that we are all going through right now", the group said in the video.

At the time, the group was visiting Shannon Falls, Canada's third-highest waterfall, which is located in British Columbia. Squamish RCMP confirmed that emergency crews recovered the three bodies on July 4 after making an aerial drop from the mountainside into the water.

Gamble, 30, and Lyakh may have died trying to save Scraper - who was the first to fall, the Vancouver Courier reported.

The group, consisting of Cross, Heuser, Charles Ryker Gamble, Alexey Andriyovych Lyakh, and Justis Cooper Price Brown, were the subject of several investigations by the U.S. National Park Service and the federal Bureau of Land Management.

Three YouTube and Instagram travel vloggers have died in Canada after falling off a waterfall.

The High on Life group has previously been criticised for posting videos - heavily labelled with warnings - of apparently unsafe stunts.

Family members of Ryker Gamble confirmed his passing to Postmedia in a statement.

They are known for posting death-defying videos on their page - including one titled, "Epic Cliff Jumping and Waterfall Slide (EXTREME DANGER)".

Gamble was among a group of young men who earned global headlines in 2016 after being charged by authorities in Wyoming with misdemeanours for walking off a boardwalk in Yellowstone National Park to get closer to the landmark's iconic Grand Prismatic Spring. They pled guilty to walking onto the Grand Prismatic Spring, the largest hot spring in the United States, which has a fragile ecosystem and on which visitors are not allowed. When standing at the face of such natural wonder, we were drawn to it.

"It's not accessible unless you drop into this pool, and there's no way other than to say that it's extremely unsafe to get there so that's something that we're trying to figure out the logistics of".
