Atlantic City Surfer’s GoPro Washes Ashore 5 Months Later, Still Working [VIDEO]
Here is a modern day South Jersey message in a bottle story.
Wait, there's more.
The camera still works.
And here's the modern day part. Thanks to social media, that surfer is about to be reunited with his GoPro.
The GoPro was still sealed up in a water proof container, and amazingly, it still worked!
Sunday night, Weir posted a short video from the camera on Facebook. It showed a surfer with the Atlantic City skyline in the background.
Within 3 hours, the owner of the camera was identified.
Andrew Finnerty, an Atlantic City lifeguard, was out surfing on the New York Ave. Beach one night back in October when he dropped his GoPro camera in the surf. He had long ago given up on finding it, until mutual friends recognized him in the video posted by Weir.
The two men plan to meet this week to reunite the surfer with his GoPro. How cool is that?
Here is the video posted from the GoPro camera on Jamie Weir's Facebook page.
