Diver Finds GoPro With Drowning Victim’s Last Moments

In 2017, Richard Ragland was enjoying a day with friends at a Tennessee lake, when he slipped under the water and drowned. Now, diver Rich Aloha has found Ragland’s GoPro camera at the bottom of the lake. The device contained footage of Ragland’s final hours. Aloha reached out to Ragland’s family about the footage. He told Inside Edition, “They were just stunned.” He said, “I don’t think there’s ever been a more impactful find.”

  • Anybody else suspicious of this? I mean, I swim. If you find yourself getting tired it's obvious. Even if he had a biological problem, his friends were just a about 10 - 15 meters away. We also never seen any footage of him in any real distress. Not being a dick, but considering it was a youtube "influencer" that found the go-pro accompanied by his underwater hollering, I think it is fair to question the validity of this find. It's not like the Police wouldn't have sent a professional team down.

  • That last part of the video though.. where you see him lose his balance to depth; parents and the kid the rest

  • Yes, yes very sad how he died... speaking of which does ANYBODY know how he died? Did he get sucked into a whirlpool? Was there a submerged cavern with an undercurrent he got too close to? Was he drunk and unable to escape the waist deep water. We all know he had a great laugh, and he was too handsome to die.... but how TF did he die? Is there a shark living in that lagoon? Was his body ever discovered? TRvision news is great for filler material.

    • @Helen Holt of course. Not sure that's the case here. But dont you think there is a FAR greater chance of drowning if you cant swim? lol it's like flying a plane with no experience.

  • I sometimes misjudge my air capacity and end up almost drowning as I’m struggling to reach the surface. Some lakes have water that feels heavy when you try swim through it. Could be one of those things.

  • He must've got cramps after eating then not waiting an hour b4 going in the water!!! Blood goes to the gastro system to digest food which takes blood away from the arms & legs!!! resulting in CRAMPS!!! So so so Sad!!! He was full of life and stamina!!!!

  • His family and friends can now remember the day they lost Richard as him being happy and having fun. That unlike many lost to violence and sadness, Richard was living life. I hope these videos give family and friends some joy because it was their love that enabled Richard to be so honestly happy.

  • death seems suspicious. he was obviously in decent enough shape, had friends around, was comfortable in the water, and the water wasn't rough / choppy.

    ChaplinChaplin6 gün önce
    • Hi Chaplin: There is another comment asking if he ate before he went swimming, because it is true that when you eat, blood goes to your stomach for the digestion process, this causes blood to deplete from the exstremities (Arms & Legs) causing cramps!!! That is why the rule is wait at least an hour after eating to go swimming. I saw my dad almost drown in Lake Tahoe because of this. Sooo Yeeyah I hope it was not his friends!!! Also maybe the the camera caught his last moments drowning?

      mike talasmike talas5 gün önce
  • Should have focused on what he was doing then taking videos and pictures , maybe he wouldn’t have gotten into water to deep for him
