FLORIDA (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A guy in Florida tries as hard as he can to live as a merman.
That's right, Eric Ducharme has a full collection of handmade tails that he slips over his legs anytime he goes for a swim.
The 22-year-old says he spends several hours a week weaving around underwater in Florida's natural springs.
He says not only does he look like a merman, but it's a mental transformation every time he slips the tail on as well.
He's now turned his obsession into a business, selling his handmade mermaid tails to other people around the world.
