The world’s tallest man doesn’t play basketball, he saves dolphins…
Veterinarians than decided to ask for help from Bao Xishun, a 2.36-metre-tall 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 1.06 metres, was able to reach deep enough into the dolphins to pull out the plastic.
Photographs showed the jaws of one of the dolphins being held back by towels so Bao could reach inside the animal without being bitten.
“Some very small plastic pieces are still left in the dolphins’ stomachs,” Zhu Xiaoling, a local doctor, told Xinhua.
“However, the dolphins will be able to digest these and are expected to recover soon.”
