It's probably one of the most terrifying, yet impressive, YouTube videos you'll watch again, and again, and again - footage from a GoPro camera hurtling down to earth in a 10,000-foot freefall. In the video, the camera is initially steadily focused on a group of skydivers before coming loose from the videographer and spinning down to the ground in a dizzying swirl.

The camera was picked up by a resident of Kristianstad, Sweden and posted online in the hopes of tracking down the camera's owner, reports Engadget. The device was eventually claimed by a parachutist from Skydive Skane, a skydiving club in the area, according to the report.
