Rescuers survey the cliff face of Shannon Falls Provincial Park as the rescue mission unfolds

Three members of a YouTube travel blogging collective have died after falling over a waterfall in Canada.

The message delivered by an unidentified member of the group says it's High on Life's responsibility to spread a message written by Ryker Gamble and Alexey Lyakh, who he says died on Tuesday with Megan Scraper. RIP Ryker Gamble, Alexey Lyakh, and Megan Scraper. But sadly, they did not survive.

But when Scraper slipped and fell, her two companions tried to save her but were all swept into the waters 30 metres below.

"Areas like Shannon Falls have very polished granite, it's very slippery with the mist and the lichen and etcetera that builds up around there-going in or near those pools has great risk", John Wilcox of Squamish Search and Rescue told radio station News 1130 Wednesday.

On Tuesday, June 3, according to eyewitness testimony given rescue personnel and CBC, it appears Scraper fell in a pool of water above the third and most remote falls in the series of cascades at Shannon Falls.

"The other friends said that they saw the three people go over, out of view from the one pool they were at", he said. Sascha Banks said before the bodies were recovered.

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

They were part of High On Life, a travel log with more than 1.5 million followers across YouTube and Instagram.

Fans of the YouTubers have rushed to social media to pay tributes following the shocking news.

The victims, all Canadians in their late 20s or early 30s, had gained fame in 2011 after creating a YouTube channel called "High on Life".

"They lived every single day to its fullest, they stood for positivity, courage, living the best life you can, and they shared and taught their values to millions or people worldwide". "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 statement read: "The family would love to hear anything or everything on how High On Life may have inspired you".

The group is known for making globe-trotting videos and attempting daring stunts and heart-racing activities such as diving off 32ft diving boards, hiking daring cliffs, and jumping off waterfalls.

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

Our hearts go out to Ryker, Megan, and Alexey's loved ones during this hard time.
