Twin brothers, 17, die and their six friends are seriously injured after climbing on to Calgary’s Olympic bobsled track at 1:30am and crashing their sled at high speed

Teenage twin brothers died after using their own sled to go down a bobsled track after-hours at the Canada Olympic Park in Calgary.

Jordan and Evan Caldwell, both 17, crashed into a large gate used to separate the luge and bobsled tracks, police said.

Six other teenage boys were injured on the same track and taken to hospital.

The twins’ families paid tribute to them in a statement

‘We were reminded today that life is but a vapor,’ the family said.
