Three YouTube and Instagram travel vloggers died on Tuesday after falling over a waterfall in Canada.

Ryker Gamble, Alexey Lyakh, and Megan Scraper were part of High On Life, a travel vlog with more than 1.1 million followers on Instagram and more than 500,000 YouTube subscribers.

Police said in a statement that the three were swimming with a group of friends at the top of Shannon Falls in British Columbia on Tuesday when they “slipped and fell into a pool 30 metres below.”

The Vancouver Sun reported that family members had confirmed Gamble’s death, while friends and social-media posts said Lyakh and Scraper were the other two killed in the accident.

High on Life posted a tribute video on its channel in which the group said Gamble, Lyakh, and Scraper “were three of the warmest, kindest, 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 added.

High On Life also provided a link to a memorial fund for the three, which has a goal of raising $US100,000 (£75,000).

It also asked that people respect their loved ones’ privacy and give them space to grieve but encouraged fans to send ways that High On Life has inspired them by using the hashtag #HOLinspired.

“A story, a picture, a song, a video – use the hashtag #HOLinspired so we can collect all of your love and thoughts in one place,” the fundraiser’s page says.
