Chinese teenager has carried friend to school on back for eight years

In Hebei, China, 16-year-old Lui Shi Ching has carried his friend to school daily for the last 8 years. His friend Lu Shao has a congenital disorder which makes it difficult for him to walk.

Eight years ago on a rainy day, Lu Shao was stuck at school when his mother didn't come to pick him up. Lui Shi Ching, who was smaller than Lu Shao, decided to help and carried him home.



Since then, he has carried Lu Shao to and from school and even to restrooms. Lui Shi Ching said: "How did I carry him when he's so heavy? I was happy helping him out and it's been 8 years already."

Lui Shi Ching didn't brag about his good deeds too much; his parents didn't even find out until 4 years after he first helped out his friend. Lu Shao mentioned in his diary that Lui Shi Ching's help has lifted a dark cloud in his life and let sunshine into it.

How did the disabled boy's parents think their son was getting to school? It seems his mother decided to stop taking him 8 years ago.

"Anonymous" Youre an idiot, im sure they knew about it. Its the other boy that was doing the carrying that didnt know until the 4th year. Of course someone has to come along and point finger, pick out the bad in a good situation. Lovely story

Wouldn't it be easier simply to leave him at school? It doesn't sound as though his mother wants him!

It couldn't happen in Britain because the school officials and the city council would go apeshit over such breach of health and safety rules.

That's what I've learned here.

It couldn't happen in Britain because the National Health Service would have provided the lad with a wheelchair..

This is some cool news i must say, those guys are awesome. But its kinda sad that people that are hungry for a knowledge are limited by some circumstances and other ones are wasting time on colleges, using sites like this for no reason. Really sad that life aint fair.
