A 49-year-old grandmother’s attempt to swim 103 miles from Cuba to the Florida Keys unassisted ended early Sunday morning when she got stopped by a strong current in the shark-infested waters
Penny Palfrey, an Australian-British endurance swimmer started swimming early Friday Morning after swimming 40 hours stung by jellyfishes and dealing with the scorching sun, she had to be pulled out of the water due to a strong southeast current that made it impossible for her to continue her swim.
Had she been able to keep up her pace, she would have come ashore on the Florida Keys on Sunday afternoon.
A post Saturday night, while Palfrey was still in the water, said she had gone more than 86 miles.
By doing so, she did score a personal best: she broke her record of 67 miles set in 2011 while swimming from Little Grand Cayman island to Big Grand Cayman island
