O’Conor shared in an interview that it has become his daily routine amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

“It felt so good I just started doing it every day,” he told reporters.

O’Conor added that he found jumping into the lake a good way to clear his mind of the world’s ills.

“I could come down here and dive in the water and it would just kind of clear it, cleanse the day, start anew,” he said.

Meanwhile, a free diver residing in Czech has broken a Guinness World Record for swimming a distance of 265 feet.

According to various news reports online, he did the swimming under the ice of a frozen lake.
