GoPro Camera Footage Survives Skydiving Fall

Lost: One GoPro camera. Moderately used. Silver in colour, clear plastic case, partial helmet harness attached. Last seen at 3,000 metres above Gringelstad, near Kristianstad, Sweden. Reward offered.

It reads like a marketing campaign dream come true: a group of sky divers were merrily plummeting their way toward the green fields of Sweden's Gringelstad when a clumsy mid-air collision caused a jumper's GoPro to become dislodged from his helmet.

Impossibly, the camera managed to survive the fall, capturing a pin-wheeling drop into a (thankfully vacant) forest below. A walker then stumbled across the camera, before his son uploaded the dizzying fall onto YouTube in an effort to find the owner of the camera - who turned out to live just up the road in Skåne. 

While the falling footage is a vomit-inducing kaleidoscope, there's something oddly hypnotic about watching until the moment of impact.

Next up, who fancies feeding one of these to a Great White and seeing if it makes it out the other end?
