A local chiropractor who successfully swam across Lake Erie Sunday has ties with the Erie Otters.
Dr. Eric Mizuba, who serves as one of two chiropractors (along with Dr. Richard Hulse) for the Otters, completed the 24.3-mile long swim from Long Point, Ontario to North East to fulfill a lifelong dream.
Dr. Mizuba began his swim at 8:29 a.m. Sunday morning and arrived on the shores of Freeport Beach to a throng of supporters at 11:03 p.m. Sunday night. He became the 14th person to complete the swim across Lake Erie.
The swim helped raise funds for the Erie City Mission. The Otters wish to congratulate Dr. Mizuba for his acheivement.
