Yeah, he did. I think he got a couple feet before 'accidentally' swamping the boat his PR executive was following him in.

He had to abort the swim to heroically rescue the PR Manager, who says "The night had been crisp and starlit, and we had fallen asleep in the raft to the gentle movement of the waves. In the morning, I gave Jon two chocolate bars and some of those mini carrots he likes so much before he jumped back into the water. He had only been swimming for an hour or so when the raft suddenly punctured in open sea. I owe my life to Jon, and I can only hope that he doesn't fire me for ruining his dream of swimming to America."
