Saving the Dolphins

Good thing it wasn't a shark. By the way, Inner Mongolia and Liaoning are adjacent provinces, so he was kind of in the neighborhood.

Dolphins saved in the arms of a very tall man
The world's tallest man helped save two dolphins in China by reaching into their stomachs and pulling out harmful plastic they had swallowed, state media said Thursday.

The dolphins got sick after eating plastic from the edge of their pool at an aquarium in Liaoning province.

Veterinarians said they decided to call for help from Bao Xishun, a 7-foot-9-inch herdsman from Inner Mongolia, according to Chinese state media...

Chen Lujun, the manager of the Royal Jidi Ocean World aquarium, told the Associated Press that the shape of the dolphins' stomachs made it difficult to push an instrument very far in without hurting the animals.

The dolphins are in "very good condition now," said Chen.
