Gulp! Hartselle sword swallower completes feat

By Staff
Special to the Enquirer
Hartselle sword swallower Dan Meyer sure knows how to attract a crowd.
Last week, he became the first person in American to swallow a solid steel sword while submerged in a tank of live sharks and stingrays.
The feat took place at Ripley’s Aquarium in Myrtle Beach, SC.
Meyer swallowed a 30-inch long solid steel sword while submerged 15 feet underwater surrounded by more than 80 sharks and stingrays in 85,000 gallons of salt water.
Meyer swallowed two different sized swords during the feat – a smaller sword first, followed by a longer 30-inch sword with a 24-inch long blade. The viewing audience included local and national media, Bike Week tourists, and a class of students who were visiting the aquarium on a field trip.
