Bárbara Hernández Huerta, a winter swimmer from Chile who won two gold medals at the 2016 Winter World Swimming Championships in Tyumen (Russia), was swimming along the O’Higgins Glacier in Chile when it started calving.

Hernández, whose nickname is Sirena De Hielo, swam while the glacier was calving. As she swam in Bernardo O’Higgins National Park, her escort crew captured the ice swim calving and posted the unique open water adventure on her Facebook page here.
