This is what it looks like when you drop a GoPro while skydiving

This week, a video emerged on YouTube taken from the memory card of a GoPro found on the ground in Sweden. Amazingly, the video shows a skydiving expedition – followed by the camera plummeting to earth after becoming detached from the diver. Here’s the video, but be warned: it might make you dizzy!

According to YouTube, the camera was found by a mycologist (someone who studies fungi) near Kristianstad in Sweden. Since the video went viral (almost a million views at the time of writing), the skydiver has been found: a skydiving enthusiast from Everöd, Skåne. Bet he thought he’d never see his camera again!

Ah, the power of the internet.
