'Mr. Okay' flies
Aldo 'Mr. Okay' Corrieri, 53, dives into the murky waters of the Tiber River from the 18-meter-high (54 feet) Ponte Cavour bridge, to celebrate the New Year, in Rome, Monday, Jan. 1, 2007. Mr. Okay's dive into the Tiber Monday, a much-loved Roman tradition which began in 1966, was followed by a new interpretation of the ritual: a three-man simultaneous dive performed by cliff divers Alain Lobet of France, Orlando Duque of Colombia and Slava Poliushuk of the Ukraine.
