A British man has become the first-ever person to complete the 660-foot swim across the Hoover Dam, albeit illegally.
Arron Hughes, 28, was on a stag-do with a group of friends in Las Vegas and has been fined by police for swimming across the iconic stretch of water on the border of Arizona and Nevada.
The forklift driver from the north of Wales said that his decision was heavily alcohol-influenced and that he only survived the swim because nine of the ten hydroelectric turbines were switched off at the time.
