(Scroll down for video) What was supposed to be a fun night out for a group of teens turned into a tragedy, police in Canada said.

Emergency workers were called to WinSport Canada in Calgary about 1:30 a.m., after a group of teenage boys managed to break into the facility.

The teens used sleds to go down the bobsled track at the Canada Olympic Park. However, things took a nasty turn when the teens crashed into a barrier.

17-year-old twin brothers Jordan and Evan Caldwell died at the scene. Six of their friends were injured. Police said that the six teens were transported to a hospital. One of the teens is in critical condition.

“It’s believed that at least eight teenagers, all males, entered the property after hours, and used personal sleds in an attempt to go down the bobsled track. About mid-way down, they crashed into a large gate that is used to separate the bobsled and luge tracks,” said Staff Sgt. Paul Wyatt.

The twins are former employees of the Canada Olympic Park, which makes it likely that they were familiar with security protocols and knew how to evade measures used to keep people off the track.
