In September, a man hunting for fungi in a field in Gringelstad, Sweden came across a GoPro camera lying in a field; upon turning it on, he discovered dizzying video that the camera captured of itself falling 10,000 feet after it was kicked off the helmet of its owner by a fellow skydiver during mid descent reports Mashable. The camera survived the fall, leaving the memory card completely intact.

After watching the video, the man turned over the video to his son, journalist Kristoffer Orstadius with Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter, who posted the video to YouTube asking for the owner of the camera to come forward. A day after it was posted, Tobias Persson of Everod, Sweden claimed the camera belonged to him; Persson claimed the memory card, but he let Orstadius keep the camera.
