The dolphins at an aquarium in Fushun, Liaoning province, had fallen sick after they swallowed 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 7’ 9” herdsman from Inner Mongolia.
Bao, 54, was confirmed last year by the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s tallest living man.
The official Xinhua news agency said Bao, using his arm length of 41.7”, was able to reach deep enough into the dolphins to pull out the plastic.
