Three YouTubers have died after falling off a waterfall.

Travel bloggers Ryker Gamble, Alexey Lyakh, and Megan Scraper all fell to their deaths in Canada, when visiting Shannon Falls in British Columbia earlier this week.

They were all part of the High On Life group that set out on adrenaline rush adventures all over the world and posted videos of their travels onto YouTube.

Police said that they were swimming in Shannon Falls when they ‘slipped and fell’ which resulted in their deaths.

‘The individuals were with a group of friends when they slipped and fell into a pool 30 metres below,’ Royal Canadian Mounted Police said.

The group set up a Go Fund Me page to raise money for their ‘loved ones’.

The page reads:

‘On July 3rd, 2018 we lost 3 very dear friends of ours; Ryker Gamble, Alexey Lyakh, and Megan Scraper. There are truly no words that can be said to ease the pain and the devastation that their families are all going through right now.

‘In support of all their loved ones, we have created a GoFundMe for any arrangements that they may need help with.

‘We would like to invite anyone that would like to help by donation to the care and expenses that come at an impossibly difficult time like this.

‘Any size of donation is greatly appreciated.

‘We would also like to encourage anyone to share this Memorial Fund with friends and family as well to provide as much support and love to the ones most affected by this tragic loss.

‘The family would love to hear anything or everything on how High On Life may have inspired you. 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. Even if you cannot provide a donation please post on whatever platform you frequent.

‘Thank you in advance for your support and love.’

The page only launched today and intends to raise $100,000 for the grieving families and to help with any costs and is currently on $550.

The group also shared this video in honour of the memory of the three.

‘High On Life is the attitude to embrace all of life’s opportunities with a positive outlook and energy,’ is the group’s Facebook slogan, as the members took their passion into a full-time job and share their adventures to exotic locations.

Last year two out of the three dead adventurers, Gamble and Lyakh, were accompanied by another group member Justis Price Brown to walk on a sensitive hot spring in Yellowstone National Park and, after they pleaded guilty to that as well as a series of other crimes across US parks, were banned from accessing US federal land for five years.
