YouTube stars die in 100-foot waterfall plunge

Three missing after falling from Shannon Falls Hikers who went missing at Shannon Falls found dead

Ryker Gamble, Alexey Lyakh and Megan Scraper starred in a series of travel videos on the YouTube channel High On Life, which has over half a million subscribers.

Describing them as "three of the warmest, kindest and most driven and outgoing people you could ever meet", the group fought back tears as they talked about the "pain and the devastation" of losing their friends. Crews recovered their bodies Wednesday.

Mangelsdorf said the family understands Scraper slipped and fell and that her boyfriend, Lyakh, tried to save her before Gamble attempted to help his childhood friend.

Two popular travel vloggers and one of the men's girlfriends have died at a Canadian tourist hotspot after plunging 30 metres in a waterfall accident.

Family members confirmed Ryker Gamble was one of the three killed.

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

Two years ago, Gamble and Lyakh were sentenced to seven days in prison in the USA and "banned from accessing US public lands for five years" after they were accused of taking photos at a protected hot springs at Yellowstone National Park, Vice News reported. One video from their channel is even titled, "Epic Cliff Jumping and Waterfall Slide (EXTREME DANGER)".

Squamish Search and Rescue launched their rescue mission Tuesday around noon after a young woman slipped and was swept into one of the pools fed by the majestic waterfalls.

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

Gamble is a controversial blogger who got in trouble in 2016 when his group walked through a protected volcanic area in Yellowstone National Park.

They spent seven days in jail for violating the Yellowstone rules in Wyoming and were banned from United States federal lands.

Gamble and Lyakh pleaded guilty to heading off the walkway at the park and onto the Grand Prismatic Spring. They were ordered to pay fines and served a week in jail.

They shared an apology on Facebook writing: 'We got over zealous in our enthusiasm for this wonderful place.

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