TARPON SPRINGS, Fla. (WFLA.com) - A teen from Sarasota has retrieved the 2014 Epiphany cross in Tarpon Springs.
Peter Smith, age 18, retrieved the cross shortly after it was thrown into the chilly waters of Spring Bayou on Monday afternoon.
"I’m just so grateful to be given this opportunity to dive for the church and my family... I just couldn't be more proud," said Smith.
43 boys, ages 16 to 18, participated in the cross dive. The boys dove into the water, then swam to dinghies where they waited for the cross to be thrown into the water. Two of the dinghies tipped over before the cross dive.
