Underwater camera added to search for trio missing near B.C. waterfall

RCMP said on Tuesday that the trio slipped and were dragged into the current while swimming in one of the pools near the top of the falls on the Upper Shannon Falls hiking trail.

Vancouver YouTube star Ryker Gamble has been identified as one of three young adults who died after slipping into the river above Shannon Falls on Tuesday.

Corp. Sascha Banks says in a statement that teams from several agencies have been searching for the trio but have not yet spotted the hikers in the pool system.

"The terrain is extremely hard, very risky, and the water flow will be heavy with the warm temperatures today, increasing the risk to those in the recovery effort", Banks said in a news release. "I can't say enough about the incredible skilled work done today by the RCMP teams along with Squamish SAR", said Cpl.

In recent years, he also worked as an instructor in a business that aims to teach people how to build a popular account on Instagram.

Police and rescue crews are working to overcome risky conditions as they try to recover the bodies of three swimmers from Shannon Falls near Squamish.

John Willcox of Squamish Search and Rescue said crews will use ropes to lower RCMP officers into the pool at Shannon Falls.

"Her boyfriend and then another friend attempted to save her", Willcox said, adding friends of the victims reported seeing them carried over the lip of one pool and into a second.
