Makes your wonder though if Morris and the Anglin brothers really made it.

There are always somebody who DO make it !
What a freak. He's 10 and they have him swimming in open water alone. Great role-models.
I wouldn't put it past this kid.
look at that sweater!
This kid is 7.
He got the idea to do it from a 10 year old doing it.
Oh even better. WTF is wrong with these kids. Or even their parents. My parents wouldn't let me put my hand out of the window of a moving car, and his let him travel the world and swim in the ocean in known shark waters. Amazing. Whats next, race car driving? Base jumping? Amazon rain forest expeditions?
His coach swam with him.
He should come and swim the English Channel next.
What's the big deal? He had plenty of support out there in the water. People swim in the bay all the time and don't get eaten by sharks. (You do have to have proper permits and guide craft to do it, as it is a shipping lane.)
An impressive feat for a seven-year old...
(BTW...I swam with the coach's sister in college. Not that that means anything...)
Watch the video. He had like three adults swimming along with him, and two boats as well.
As for race car driving, they most definitely do start them that early around here... and my own kids went to the amazon rain forest when they were in third and fourth grade.
Personally I don't think kids should be pushed to do such things, but if they want to do it, why not give them the opportunity? Would it be better to just lock them in their rooms with Nintendo?
I just got back from San Fran and took a tour of Alcatraz when I was there. The park service said that contrary to popular belief, there are NO sharks in the bay that would ever attack a human.
