    Outpourings of condolences have been sent from across social media platforms as the trio of popular YouTube vloggers were pronounced dead after falling over a waterfall in Canada.

    According to local media reports, the stars of the adventure vlog, “High On Life,” Ryker Gamble and Alexey Lyakh died while attempting to save the latter’s girlfriend, Megan Scraper, from being swept over the Shannon Falls on July 3.

    Royal Canadian Mounted Police released a statement, saying they had received a call about three people swimming at the top of the waterfall, who then “slipped and fell into a pool 30 meters below” and were taken by the current over the falls.

    Other members of the “High On Life” team also uploaded a tribute video to their channel:

    “There are truly no words that can be said to ease the pain and the devastation we are all going through right now. They were three of the warmest, kindest and most driven and outgoing people that you could ever meet. They lived every single day to its fullest, they stood for positivity, courage and living the best life that you can, and they shared and taught their values to millions of people worldwide,” one of the vloggers said.
