Here’s something you don’t see every day. This took place earlier this year, and recently has generated a lot of interest with photographers. A GoPro is said to survive after falling from several thousands of feet from a skydiving plane and landing in a pigpen. This footage captures everything this poor camera has been through, which includes almost being devoured by the pigpen’s resident. Yes, after surviving that fall, the end of the footage will show you how a pig tried to munch on the camera, showing us the view from grub’s perspective; if you've ever wondered what it was like to be pig food.
The owner of the pigpen retrieved the camera eight months after it had fallen. Even after that time, they were still able to download the video that shown where exactly this gear came from. Like any other viral videos, people are questioning if this footage is authentic or not.
Do you think this video is real or fake? Some people don’t think a GoPro can survive that high a fall. Some people viewed the last few seconds of the fall to be too cool to not be edited. Are GoPros really built that it can survive being licked and munched upon by pigs for eight months long, considering the natural factors involved in being in a open pigpen?
