Lara (Delara), Luis Rodriguez de

Rodriguez de Lara, a Boulogne waiter originally from Spain, found drowned in the sea off Wimereux, is said by many to have become the first person to die while making a Channel swim attempt, but the story is highly questionable and comes only from American sources all using the same news-wire feed; it is unlikely to have been a serious swim attempt and seems actually to have been drunken misadventure.
