Brothers Find GoPro While Snorkeling — What Happens Next Is Heartwarming.

footage from the lost gopro camera that shows two women adventuring in the river

Kyle Puelston and his daring family have a favorite swimming hole on Minnesota’s Temperance River.

As a matter of fact, this family makes the trek every year for some good ol’ family fun and document the excursions with Kyle’s GoPro camera.

One fateful summer, Kyle and his family were jumping into the Temperance, when Kyle’s GoPro slipped off his head and sank to the river bottom. After 30 minutes of searching, Kyle resigned himself to the loss and went on with his vacation… One year later, the long-lost camera resurfaced in the most surprising way.

Chris Flores and his brother were snorkeling downriver from the Puelston’s getaway when they found Kyle’s long-lost camera, intact and dry in its casing. The Flores brothers were elated with the find, but then they downloaded the camera footage – it wasn’t what they expected.

Instead of random videos, the Flores brothers found hours upon hours of family movies and adventures. Chris Flores had nearly lost his infant daughter to a heart attack the year before, so he knew exactly how important it was to remember those fleeting family moments. As Chris well said, “We’re not guaranteed tomorrow.” The brothers contacted Kyle attempting to return the camera, but Kyle only requested they send him the video card. He let Chris keep the camera!

Kyle isn’t upset about losing the camera anymore “I’m totally glad it happened now, it’s an awesome story.”
