When they did, the pool system swept them down 30 meters (nearly 100 feet) to another pool system.

John Willcox of Squamish SAR, said they have responded to a number of accidents in the pools, though adds that this is the first fatality he has responded to.

The High On Life YouTube channel has more than 504,477 subscribers, while the trio's Instagram accounts are each followed by between 70,000 to 1.1 million people.

Ryker Gamble, 30, Alexey Lyakh, 30 and Megan Scraper, 29, were hiking with friends in Shannon Falls Park, just north of Vancouver, when the accident happened.

Three young adventurers were killed earlier this week when they fell from the third-highest waterfall in British Columbia, Canada. They promoted positivity, courage and living the best life.

High On Life are based in Vancouver and were formed by Gamble, Lyakh and another high school friend, Parker Heuser, after they travelled the world in 2012.

"He'd known Alexey his whole life, since they were little, little kids".

A ceasefire agreement has been reached with leaders of armed groups in Syria's Deraa province, Russia's Defense Ministry has said. Russian military police would deploy instead with local forces overseen by Russia also deployed, they said.


Witnesses told authorities they saw Scraper slip from the rocks at the top of the waterfall and the two men allegedly jumped in the falls to save her, CBC News reported. "They were three of the warmest, kindest, most driven and outgoing people that you could ever meet, and the world has lost a great deal of light with their passing", the tribute read, with a link to the funding campaign. Scraper's boyfriend, Lyakh, as well as Gamble, dove in to save her.

Any funds left over will be given to the families to cover their travel, accommodation and other expenses, the GoFundMe page says.

"When life is on objective and I feel clear with my direction, all my other decisions seem to get easier", he wrote, adding that "it took me 29 years to understand this".

The bodies of the three victims were recovered Wednesday after RCMP officers rappelled to the pool via helicopter because the area is otherwise inaccessible.

They've asked those who felt inspired by the High On Life crew to share stories, photos or videos using the hashtag #HOLInspired, which they will then share with the grieving families.

Banks said the bodies were discovered Tuesday evening, hours after the trio slipped and fell into the pool. "Unless you have the knowledge of that area, the expertise and the right equipment you should not be up there".
