Erik Storm is a tour group guide at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. While he was conducting a tour, he placed his GoPro down and the camera was swallowed up by a lava flow.
His first thought was the camera was toast but GoPro claims that their cameras are indestructible. So now to put their claim to the test. The camera was chiseled out of the cooled lava flow.
Once he got home, he chiseled off the remaining lava rock off the camera and he discovered that the wifi light was still flashing. He was able to download the video captured when the lava flow swallowed the camera.
He proved GoPro’s claim. The temperature of flowing lava is about 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit.
