He Made History! Moseley Swims Across Lake Pontchartrain

MANDEVILLE, La. (WGNO) - It took him a little longer than he predicted, but Matthew Moseley is back on land after successfully swimming across Lake Pontchartrain.

Moseley followed the official English Channel rules for his 25 mile swim, meaning Moseley could not touch a boat or person during his swim along the Causeway.

(Btw The Causeway is the longest over water bridge in the world)

Moseley made his big splash at 9:01 p.m. Wednesday arriving on the shore in Mandeville 15 hours later.

The history making feat was all to raise money for the Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation and to celebrate their 25th anniversary.


About an hour before Moseley reached his destination in Mandeville WGNO saw this little guy. The 5-foot alligator was swimming about 200 yards away from where Moseley was expected to get out of the lake.
