7-year-old boy swims from Alcatraz to SF
Saw this on the news this morning. Braxton Bibley, a 7-year-old kid from Arizona, just finished the 1.47 mile swim from Alcatraz to San Francisco in 47 minutes. He could be the youngest person to have swam those chilly and choppy waters, as the last kid to have swam the distance was 9-year-old Johnny Wilson from Hillsborough about seven months ago. Bibley did it to raise money for a drowning prevention program in Arizona. Pretty impressive!
