A Chinese schoolboy suffers from an incurable muscle disease and cannot walk, but his classmate has been carrying him to and from school for six years.
The story of the friendship between these two children from Sichuan Province caught the attention of the local newspaper, and photos of the boys together spread on the internet.
The bond between the boys melted the hearts of social media users, who believe that these boys are an example of true learning.
In late March 2019, the Chinese newspaper Sichuan Online published an article about these two schoolchildren.
Their names are Zhang Ze and Xu Bingyan.
Zhang Ze has been suffering from a rare and incurable muscle disease since he was four years old, sometimes referred to as “rag doll syndrome.”
Due to this condition, he cannot control his leg muscles and cannot walk on his own.
Nevertheless, he goes to school every day, all thanks to his best friend.
Xu Bingyan has been helping Zhang since day one.
The boys are now in the sixth grade, and every day, Xu carries his friend on his shoulders to attend classes and assists him in moving between the classes.
Zhang Ze also spoke to reporters. The boy admitted that he is infinitely grateful to his friend for what he does for him.
Even Xu himself never told his parents about his actions. His gesture was entirely voluntary.
The story of these two children touched the hearts of social media users all over the world.
People were moved by the genuine concern one person showed to another.
