The winner of this year's swim for the Epiphany cross at Lake Eola in Orlando, Florida has many things about which to be happy. First, that he found the cross; second, that he became the youngest ever to do so at this event. Isaac Abdelmessih is six years old.

From the article:
Quote
Issac, of Altamonte Springs, was the youngest diver ever to recover the cross from the lake in a ritual that symbolizes Christ's baptism, said Father John Hamatie, pastor of the church across Rosalind Avenue from Lake Eola Park.
