Vermont Man to Swim Lake Champlain

Listen to this story
A Vermont man who recently finished an eight-week swim down the Hudson River plans to swim the length of Lake Champlain. Christopher Swain plans to start the 125-mile trip this morning in Whitehall, on the New York side of the lake, and finish in Quebec around September 24th. Swain, who lives in Colchester, says he was motivated by the high levels of E Coli bacteria in the lake across the street from his house.
