Misplacing things is a normal occurence, but this is definitely an extreme example.
The GoPro skydiving video begins much the same as any other: each of the adrenaline junkies line up to jump out of the plane. As the divers begin their descent, they come together to attempt aerial formations.
As our cameraperson comes in to join the team, the GoPro is ripped off of his helmet and begins a freefall all on its own.
Warning: the rest of the video is not for the faint of heart.
The camera begins to spin wildly out of control and creates an insane tie-dye whirlwind of a video. It’s one psychedelic trip.
It continues to spin for a solid minute and half, until it finally hits the ground.
Turns out, the uploader of the video wasn’t even the skydiver. Instead, it was posted in an attempt to find the owner and return the camera. The video description explains that the father of the uploader found it on the ground in the forest.
Fortunately, this story has a happy ending. A day after the video was posted, the owner of the camera and memory card was found.
