Huang Li swims three hours in chilly river
A father tied his 10-year-old daughter's hands and feet and watched her swim in a chilly river for three hours 'help her achieve her dream of swimming across the English Channe.Huang Li swam like a dolphin', occassionally paddling with her bound hands, for two or three kilometers in the Xiang River in Southern China.

Why would any father do such a thing? Well he felt like it will help her to achieve her goal of swimming the English Channel. The girl got the idea from watching a similar feat on a local television program.

Her father, Huang Daosheng, said she travelled with the current and added: "Her swimming skills are perfect and she insisted on doing this. It's not dangerous because, first, her swimming skills are really good and second, I was swimming with her, staying close to her. I had her when I was 35, so she is my heart. I would never play around with her life."
