  • Description

    French frogman Louis Lourmais, accompanied by his enterprising wife Liliane, plunged back into the Rhine at Bonn, Mar 18, heading for Cologne, on another 20-mile leg of his 600-mile swimming marathon down the river from Schaffhausen, Switzerland, to Rotterdam, Holland.

    Ploughing through the water amidst tugs and river boats, Louis and his wife reached Cologne Mar 19. They are planning to get as far as Rotterdam by Mar 25.

    An ex-Commando, the 40-year-old Frenchman set out from Schaffhausen, Mar. 8, to prove by his feet in a chilly winter month that shipwreck victims can survive in icy water if they were special equipment.
