Three YouTube stars who featured in a vlog with more than half a million subscribers have died after falling over a waterfall in Canada.

Ryker Gamble, Alexey Lyakh and Megan Scraper were swimming in a pool system, at the top of Shannon Falls in British Columbia “and then walking along the ledge shortly thereafter,” said a federal police spokesman.

Cpl Sascha Banks said they fell nearly 100 feet. Search and rescue teams have recovered the bodies. At nearly 1,100 feet, Shannon Falls is the third tallest waterfall in British Colombia.

The trio starred in a video blog called High On Life and in a tribute posted on the channel, other members of the group confirmed the tragedy and paid tribute to their late friends.

A memorial fund has been set up to assist the families of the dead, following their deaths on Tuesday. 

It said: “There are truly no words that can be said to ease the pain and devastation that their families are going through right now.”
