GRINGELSTAD, Sweden — A GoPro camera that detached from a skydiver, plummeting almost 10,000 feet through the air and to the ground, managed to stay intact enough to capture footage of its stunning fall.

A video uploaded to YouTube April 3 shows the fall, and it has since gone viral with already more than 1 million views.

YouTube user Kristoffer Örstadius claims his father found the camera on the ground in Gringelstad, Sweden (map), with the memory card intact.

The video begins with a group of skydivers during a jump. At about the 1:30 mark, the GoPro becomes detached, and sends the viewer through an intense, dizzying spin from the sky to the ground.

In the original caption to the video, the user said he was looking for the owner of the camera. According to an update in the YouTube description, the owner, “a parachutist in Everöd in Skåne,” has since been found.
