Mangelsdorf said Thursday that Gamble was hiking with friends around Shannon Falls on Tuesday when the accident happened that left three of them dead.

Squamish RCMP said they received a call from BC Ambulance just before noon Tuesday regarding three people who were swimming in one of the pools at the top of the falls.

One of Gamble's family members also confirmed that he was among those killed.

The videos earned the High On Life crew hundreds of thousands of subscribers, and tributes poured in to Gamble's Instagram account Wednesday.

The Daily Mail reported that 30-year-old Ryker Gamble, Alexey Andriyovych Lyakh and Megan Scraper fatally plunged over Shannon Falls, which totals about 1,100 feet in height.

High On Life had nearly 500,000 subscribers and the team's last video, about the best things to do in Bali, was uploaded just four days ago.

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

Lyakh and Gamble started High on Life with another childhood friend, Justis Price Brown and documented their travels online.

They added that teams had "worked throughout the day to complete the complex recovery of all three people from Shannon Falls" and that the file had been given to the coroner's office.

"The world has lost a great deal of light with their passing", Parker Heuser said in the video published Friday morning.

A two-day search and rescue operation in the unsafe waters eventually turned into a recovery mission to retrieve their bodies. According to witnesses Scraper slip from the rocks at the top of the waterfall and the two men allegedly jumped in the falls to save her.

Gamble and Lyakh had made headlines before after they broke rules at Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming for a series of photos and spent seven days in jail, according to CBC News.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to support Ms Hansen. "Unless you have the knowledge of that area, the expertise and the right equipment you should not be up there".

The group has also asked fans to share social posts showing how High On Life inspired them using the hashtag #HOLinspired, which they say they will use to "collect all of your love and thoughts in one place".
