6-month-old skis across lake; parents say it's a record
ORLANDO, Fla. - A 6-month-old girl whose professional water-skier parents put her on junior-size water skis last week glided 686 feet across a man-made lake in what her parents say sets a youth record.
Keith St. Onge said in an interview Wednesday that his daughter Zyla could have kept going if the boat hadn't reached the end of the lake.
The 30-inch Zyla, who doesn't yet walk, skied across Lake Silver in Winter Haven, Florida, last Thursday.
She stood on junior-size water skis that were attached to each other by wood. She gripped a handle bar attached to the skis.
Adults treaded water on either side of Zyla's path.
USA Water Ski spokesman Scott Atkinson didn't return a phone call and email inquiry about whether Zyla had set a youth record.
