World’s Tallest Man Saves Dolphins with Long Arms

I was searching around for weird marriage stories (to go along with my previous features of man marries dog, man marries goat, and 102-year-old man gets married) when I found one about the world’s tallest man (7’9″) marrying a woman who is more than 2 feet shorter than him.  But that’s not the most interesting part of the story;  this is:

“He was in the news in December after he used his long arms to save two dolphins by pulling out plastic from their stomachs.  The dolphins got sick after nibbling on plastic from the edge of their pool at an aquarium in Liaoning province. Attempts to use surgical instruments to remove the plastic failed because the dolphins’ stomachs contracted in response to the instruments, Chinese media reported.”
