That Time a Basketball Player Saved a Dolphin

More than ten years ago, we posted a story about 7' 9" Bao Xishun saving the lives of dophins by sticking his long arm down their throats to retrieve plastic they'd swallowed. It turns out there's precedent for this type of heroism. In 1978, Marine World called in Clifford Ray of the Golden State Warriors, famous for his long arms, in to save a dolphin that had swallowed a bolt! Read about the incident, and see a video, at Weird Universe.
