Mike Pagliccia, left, known for his headline-making feat spending 15 days in a raft in the Gulf and in Naples Bay last spring, connects with Daniel Gomez, 2, after he is submerged Friday into a custom-built tank in the Fifth Avenue South courtyard between Yabba Island Grill and McCabe’s Irish Pub. Pagliccia planned to stay underwater for 48 hours and hopes to raise $15,000 to send underprivileged children to YMCA summer camp. He spent 16 hours in the tank, but he had to get out earlier than planned due to sharp chest pains.
