Thank you for your comment. Not only does he have to swim at 17,000 feet which is an accomplishment in itself, but the water temperature is beyond anything but a handful of people are swimming in (Lynne Cox, Ram Barkai)- at sea level. He is putting himself in harm's way with the goal of helping mankind as a result. We truly wish him well.
