Popular Canadian YouTubers Ryker Gamble, Alexey Lyakh and Megan Scraper died on Tuesday in a tragic accident that occurred at Shannon Falls in British Columbia.

In a statement released on Wednesday, the Squamish RCMP wrote that, “On July 3rd, 2018, at 11:55 am Squamish RCMP received a call from BC Ambulance regarding three people who were swimming in one of the pools at the top of Shannon Falls.”

“The individuals were with a group of friends when they slipped and fell into a pool 30 metres below,” the police continued, adding that all three bodies had since been recovered, and the case was being referred to the British Columbia Coroners Service. They did not release the names of the deceased.

Shannon Falls is the third highest waterfall in British Columbia, reaching a height of 1,009 ft.

The accident occurred after Scraper slipped and fell off the waterfall, according to the Vancouver Sun. Gamble and Lyakh reportedly then got swept away by the water while trying to save her.

The British Columbia Coroners Service — who investigate all sudden and unexpected deaths in the province — told PEOPLE on Friday that they are in the early stages of investigating their deaths, although they could not confirm or release the identities of “the three decedents in their late 20s — one female and two males.”

In a YouTube video published on July 6, members of the group High on Life — a group that posts travel videos online — shared a tearful memorial for the three deceased vloggers.
