TORONTO - An Ontario teenager managed to swim across Lake Ontario on Sunday.
Annaleise Carr was greeted by cheering family members and other onlookers as she splashed to the shore in Toronto after nightfall.
She says at 14, she's the youngest person ever to accomplish the feat.
She set off from Niagara on the Lake Saturday evening and had to plow through waves as high as 1.5 metres at times.
Carr, who is from the tiny community of Walsh in southern Ontario, spent nearly 27 hours in the water.
Part of the reason behind her swim was to raise money for Camp Trillium, a childhood cancer support centre.
