A Camera Gets Swallowed By Lava, Miraculously Survives And Films The Entire Thing
Erik Storm lost his GoPro camera into a crevice, slowly filling up with molten lava, but luckily, he got a pretty incredible video out of the whole ordeal. Erik works for Kilauea EcoGuides, a tour group based in the Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park.
While GoPros are known for being nearly indestructible, Erik wasn’t feeling too optimistic about the fate of his camera. “I used a geology rock hammer to pull it out of the lava and thought it was a total loss,” he said. As it turns out, the camera was not only still mostly intact, but it had managed to record everything as the lava swallowed it down. After Erik removed the SD card, he watched the mesmerizing footage.
