Boyd Huppert, KARE-TV - SCHROEDER, Minn. - When Kyle Puelston felt the GoPro camera slip off the top of his head, his heart sank as deep as the Temperance River bottom.
Which is also where his head-strap and GoPro were headed.
"It's gone forever," he thought. "I'll never see it again."
After a year underwater, his GoPro proved him wrong.
"It's crazy," Puelston said.
Nearly a year to the day after Puelston lost the camera during a cliff dive, two brothers pulled it out of the river while snorkeling.
The GoPro was still dry inside its waterproof case.
Chris Flores took the camera home, though his brother actually pulled it out of the river.
"He found a ring, a pair of sunglasses and a GoPro," Flores said. "I found a skateboard and some construction debris, so I got the good end of the deal."
Flores - who didn't own a GoPro - was elated with his bounty, until he viewed the camera's media card and discovered videos Puelston had shot with his children.
Flores also found video that Pueltson - a sergeant with the Chisago County Sheriff's Department - had shot during SWAT training.
By still-framing a patch on a deputy's uniform, Flores was able to make out the words "Chisago County," which led him to Puelston, who was stunned to get the message.
"It's a testament to his character," said Puelston. "I've told this story to a couple of people and their first reaction is, 'Wow, I'd never do something like that. I would have just kept the camera.'"
Puelston didn't know it at the time, but Flores was being steered to do right thing by two powerful forces: his Christian faith and his youngest daughter, Morel.
Last year, at 4-months-old, Morel had a heart attack caused by a tumor in her left ventricle.
"It's all so fleeting, we're not guaranteed tomorrow," said Flores, who performed CPR on his daughter until the ambulance arrived at his families' Jordan home.
Heart surgery saved Morel, but her father couldn't watch those Puelston family videos without thinking of his daughter.
"If I would had one picture, one video, and I would have lost that - that would have been rough."
Puelston was so grateful to get the video back, he told Flores to keep the camera. He'd already purchased a new one anyway.
"I'm totally glad it happened now, it's an awesome story," Puelston said.
Flores agreed, as he clutched his healthy daughter, now approaching her second birthday.
"She's definitely going to be in some GoPro videos," he smiled. "She's the one that'll be jumping off the cliff."

I lost my GoPro H5 2 days ago in the river Aare in Bern, after I recorded the whole day, including my 4h boatride on that river. The weather was very unique and so were many shots. Stupid me wasn't thinking of bringing a cord to secure it. Although I took very care the whole ride, it happened that I lost it the very 5 seconds I was on the river, because I had trouble at the exit. I still shake my head in disbelief! Today I go back to dive for it, I hope for the best!

That is amazing and magical at the same time, it so amazing that the GoPro still works under the water housing for a Year and I can only imagine what relief has come to both the Guys who return the card and the one receive the card, I guess you should never lose hope on anything, loved the video and thanks so much for sharing this Cheers 😇✌
