GoPro Falls From 3,000 Meters, Found by Mycologist, Returned To Parachutist
Here is a story that can only happen in the days of the internet. A mycologist (fungi explorer) was doing his thing in Sweden while suddenly founding a GoPro on the floor.
He tested the memory card and found the above footage, which was uploaded to Youtube by his son. Apparently the GoPro detached while connecting while maneuvering in midair and swirled down to the ground.
Here is the crazy bit, after the movie was uploaded to YouTube it amassed millions of view until the camera owner/parachutist was notified and the camera was sent to him – only a day later.
Of course, some commenters on YouTube are calling this movie out as a fake movie or a publicity stunt, but nonetheless it makes a cool story.
