Twin teenage brothers who died during an after-hours visit to a luge-bobsleigh track are being remembered as dynamic members of their communities, while prayers continued for other boys who were hurt in the crash.

Jordan and Evan Caldwell, 17, were killed and six other male teenagers were injured early on Saturday while using a personal toboggan to go down the bobsleigh track at Canada Olympic Park.

They hit a large gate used to separate the luge and bobsleigh tracks in Calgary.

In a statement published by the Calgary Police Service on Facebook, the boys' family said their deaths leave "a huge void".
