Ride a passing whale

Free diver Julia Petrik rides a beluga whaleTry to imagine this thrill!

Holding her breath for two minutes, wearing just a wet suit, mask and flippers, free diver Julia Petrik cut through the ice, ­descended into icy cold -2ºC (28ºF) water without an oxygen tank to 25m (82ft), and hitched a ride with a beluga whale.
