Diver Finds GoPro Containing Man’s Last Moments, Gives Family Closure


A treasure-hunting diver recently came upon a lost GoPro camera at the bottom of a waterfall. It turns out it was lost two years ago by a man who drowned there, and the SD card is now providing the victim’s family with closure.

WSB-TV reports that YouTuber Rich Aloha was diving at Foster Falls in Tennessee and looking for lost treasure when he saw tip of a thumbscrew and then dug up a buried GoPro camera from the muck.

The SD card inside the camera was working, and after reviewing the footage, Aloha realized that the camera belonged to a man who had drowned at the swimming hole two years ago (something park rangers had told him about).
