A GoPro camera containing final moments of a man before he drowned two years ago has been discovered by a YouTuber.
Richard Ragland unfortunately drowned at Foster Falls State Park Tennessee back in 2017 and his parents have sought for closure of Ragland’s final moments before he drowned. The park rangers handed the family a footage of Ragland, which was recorded by someone else, but the flash drive had been stolen.
According to WSB-TV, YouTuber Rich Aloha, a self-described treasure hunter, discovered Ragland’s GoPro. The GoPro was equipped with a memory card and filled with videos of Ragland together with his friends. While reviewing the footage, he remembered Ragland and told WSB-TV that he was surprised that “this [was] the guy” the park rangers told him about earlier on.
He decided to reach out to Ragland’s family through Google searches, and returned them the memory card after tracking them down. Although the family hasn’t viewed the footage yet, hopefully the video could provide the closure they needed after their son’s death.
