Skydiver enthusiast Lucas was about to take his gopro camera out for a spin when he knocked the helmet mounted case on the top of the airplanes’s exit door.
The slight knock was enough to unlatch the camera’s protective case and his camera popped out and took a solo 12,500 foot freefall dive to the earth.
The gopro not only survived the accident, it filmed the entire dizzying fall and quietly even filmed the rest of the divers landing before being rescued from the grass.
I feel like I’ve just been slapped A LOT. Very fast. And then a sort of like a happy Blair Witch Project ending!
Yup…dizzy making if you are not careful. I thought the fall would never end. But then…think! And fascinating that the thing survived.
