BEIJING, May 13 — Attempting to retrieve his girlfriend’s dropped sunglasses, a man jumped into the pool of the Northeast Tiger Area at the Shanghai Zoo last month.
After his girlfriend’s 3,000 yuan ($429) sunglasses accidentally fell into the pool, the man immediately ordered zoo staff to cage the tigers so he could fish out the sunglasses himself.
Seeing they were hesitant, the man then claimed that he would jump in regardless, which forced the workers to comply to ensure his safety.
Stripping down to his white briefs, the man jumped into the cold and dirty pool in search of the glasses.
Despite his questionably brave efforts, the man came up empty handed.
A zoo worker who witnessed the event said he had never seen this kind of thing happened at the zoo before.
