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.”

This is heartbreaking, he seems like such a joyful person, happy to be alive. Such a young life, too young.
The editing the creaming when they show the camera underwater , you can count on Insider to be cringe about things.

He lived a short but fulfilled life, better than living a long depressing and meaningless life(still not very cool tho)

He obviously didn't know how to swim or his bone density literally took him under. David Goggins talks about it in his book on why very few black men can pass BUDS training. Their bone density turns them into anchors and they just drop to the bottom.

Well. At least he died doing what he loved. Tragic, but a silver lining in the dark cloud nonetheless.

I bet the poor guy could not swim. This is more common than it should be in the African American community.

This why I am always aware of my surroundings anything can happen and at any giving time your probably laying in your bed right now reading this comment and there could be a flame starting in your house right now and you wouldn't know God forbid that, but I'm saying don't take anything for granted because you really don't know what you truly have, to you don't have it anymore... the man died living his life and he's in a better place now that's all that matters. Rest his soul. people need to always be careful anywhere have a good time but make sure NOTHING can stop you from remembering that good time. Good luck people ✌️

They can make a movie about white men not jumping but can't about blacks swimming, just want to point that out.

The guy was way too wild. This is the kind of guy who usually ends up dead from having no restraint.

It’s kinda weird knowing that we’re watching a dead man having fun before he died

I don't think Inside Edition really internalized how incredibly sad this is. Like, top of the world to dead within a series of vacation videos. The emotional journey on that GoPro is insane.
