A devoted Chinese father who carries his disabled son 18 miles to school every day will be provided with government-funded accommodation nearby.

Yu Xukang walks the huge distance with his son, Xiao Qiang, strapped to his back in a specially constructed basket.

The 40-year-old, from Fengyi township in Yibin county in southwest China’s Sichuan province - 2,000 miles west of Shanghai - refused to give up on the boy now aged 12, despite the fact that both his arms and legs are twisted and his back is hunched.



Devoted: Chinese father Yu Xukang carries his son to school every day - a round-trip of 18 miles

I'm sure there are many dads with a similar devotion to their children. But yes he deserves some kind of award. I wonder how big fraction of the increases in military spending would necessary to give every child with similar disability a mobility scooter.

What a great story of love and devotion.

This father is truly special.  I agree.
