British Millionaire's Dolphin 'Husband' Dies; 'He Vomited and Did Not Look Good'

JERUSALEM, Israel -- Cindy the dolphin, who grabbed headlines after British millionaire Sharon Tendler said 'I Do' to him last year, died on Sunday following illness and like all creatures of the deep was given a burial at sea.

"Cindy swam slowly and he had problems eating. Sometimes he didn't eat at all. He vomited and did not look good," Maya Zilber, manager at the Eilat reef's training center told 'Ynetnews'.

The dolphin's body was discovered this morning by reef workers floating in its favourite place, the entrance of the diving and swimming instructors, Zilber said.

Reef workers put Cindy's body in a boat and sailed into the sea where they parted from it.

The love affair had captured the world's amused attention last December because of its sheer novelty.

At a public ceremony, Tendler wore a white dress and placed flowers on her head to tie the knot with Cindy, who escorted by his fellow best-men dolphins swam over to his bride.

The Jewish millionaire hugged him, whispered sweet nothings in his ear and kissed him in front of a cheering crowd.

Tendler, a British rock concert producer, met the Dolphin 15 years ago and developed a liking resulting in two to three annual visits every year to spend some time with her underwater love.

"The peace and tranquility underwater, and his love, would calm me down," the excited bride had said after the wedding ceremony.
