World's tallest man saves dolphins

That's interesting...Though the dolphins must have been really freaked out.
From the Daily Telegraph...
The dolphins at an aquarium in Fushun, Liaoning Province, had fallen sick after swallowing the plastic from the edge of their pool, and attempts to use surgical instruments to remove the plastic failed because of the contraction of the dolphins' stomachs in response to the instruments, the China Daily newspaper reported.

Veterinarians than decided to ask for help from Bao Xishun, a 2.36-metre-tall herdsman from Inner Mongolia.

The official Xinhua news agency said Bao, using his arm length of 1.06 metres, was able to reach deep enough into the dolphins to pull out the plastic.


  1. I'm not sure if that's what the dolphin meant by a 'helping hand'.

  2. thanks for the link!

    yeah - that man is very tall. that's 19 inches taller than me!

    It must be hard to find clothes and transportation and stuff. Probably more of an inconvenience than a blessing...
