An Orlando man discovered a GoPro while scuba diving, which contained the final moments of 22-year-old Richard Ragland’s life, according to a report by WFTV.

Ragland, who had been a member of the National Guard, drowned in 2017 at a Tennessee waterfall, WFTV reported.

Rich Aloha found the GoPro Ragland had been using to record his outing before the tragic incident occurred, the report showed.

Aloha, a self described treasure hunter on his YouTube channel, said he found the camera in the muck of the area Ragland lost his life, WFTV reported.

Aloha reached out to Ragland’s grieving parents and sent the intact SD card to their home; they were thankful for the last look at their son, WFTV said.
