Brooklyn, New York - For World AIDS Day, Victor Mooney didn't touch an oar. Thanks to the New York Methodist Hospital dedicated staff, they are giving Mr. Mooney 24/7 attentive care.
He is just recuperating from exhaustion, cold weather and the elements in the ocean.
The culmination of Mr. Mooney's 5,000 mile transatlantic row ended successfully at the Brooklyn Bridge on November 30, which took twenty-one months. A ten year quest that took four boats and three failed attempts.
On arrival at the Brooklyn Bridge, Mr. Mooney said, honor this row by getting tested for HIV.
