Skydivers attempting to record their fall from an airplane brought along a GoPro camera, but instead of capturing their fall, it captured its own.

And, the attention of a pig.

The camera apparently falls out of the skydiver's hand and continues to record as it plummets to the ground.

After the dizzying footage stops, a pig's snout can be seen investigating the object, even attempting to eat it a few times.

"Camera falls from a sky diving airplane and lands on my property in my pig pen. I found the camera 8 months later and viewed this video," wrote YouTube user Mia Munselle.

The video has been viewed more than 1 million times already, although some believe the footage is fake.

You be the judge.
