Tourists in Sanya Take Photos with Stranded Dolphin
On the afternoon of June 16, at about 6pm, some city residents discovered a stranded dolphin in the waters of Hainan Province Sanya City Dadong Sea. While waiting for the rescue team to arrive, some tourists and city residents who were swimming at the sea rushed over to take photo of the dolphin upon hearing the news. Quite a few tourists kept asking the lifeguards to lift the dying dolphin out of the water so that they could take pictures with it. To this, an old fisherman passing by said that what they were doing was very inappropriate, and that it could easily cause the dolphin to choke on the water and die.
On the evening of June 16, in Hainan Province Sanyan City, on the surface of the Big East China Sea, people lifting the dying dolphin out of the water to take pictures with it.
Comments from NetEase:
Just couldn’t spare the dolphin, could you guys?
This is Chinese people, normal. As for the future of this nation? He he…

By the time they’re done taking pictures, the dolphin will pretty much be dead.
Just by their looks they don’t look like good people~
A bunch of morons.
Look at them being 213 in the third picture.
Comments from Sina:
A nation without the most basic common sense at all!
Seeing how the comments are almost completely one-sided in criticism/condemnation, I think our nation still has hope!
With characters like these, no matter how powerful your economy gets, your nation will still be looked down upon by others. The Ugly Chinese, what will the future of our nation be? So worried.
How can they do this?! So inhumane. Dolphins are human’s best friends, they’d even protect us when we are under attack by sharks. Is this how we repay them?!! Strongly condemn this kind of inhumane behavior.
Rather than immediately thinking of saving a life, they selfishly took photos. I feel ashamed for the characters of my compatriots.
Comments from QQ:
Just one look at these SBs and you can tell they aren’t good people.
That’s a friend of humankind, even saver of lives! How But you guys, you’re fucking taking pictures?! Why not go take funeral pictures with your dying fathers?! Motherfuckers! A bunch of beasts… Are you the only people who have cell phones [and thus must show off the ability to take photos with them]?! What were you waiting for?! Hurry and save the dolphin!
When they’re about to die, I hope a dolphin comes and drowns them in the water.
I suggest using a rope to hoist these people taking group photos [with the dolphin] for us to take pictures with them.
A bunch of of nao can bunch, evaluation complete. If it was a shark, then it might be forgiven, but that’s a dolphin, our good friend.
When will our compatriots improve their characters?! I’m no longer able to put my feelings in words.
Even taking a self photo? What were you thinking, dude?
Damn, a bunch of scumbags who have no love for animals.
Since they are so into taking pictures of themselves, so narcissistic, might as well just show them on Xinwen Liaobo. Such disgusting men.
An update from Sina Weibo:
@新浪视频: Stranded Dolphin in Sanya Died from Inhaling Water: On the 16th, some city residents discovered a stranded dolphin, and some tourists lifted it up [out of the water] to take pictures with it. According to a report on the 17th by Dragon TV: The divers were trying to help the dolphin by lifting it up, because dolphins breathe with their backs, and leaving it in the seawater would be dangerous, so they lifted it up, and only during the time that some tourists were taking pictures. After the dolphin was taken to the hospital, it died last night [June 16] at 12 midnight due to having inhaled too much water.
According to another report, the dolphin died from loss of blood.
