Xie Xu is our hero. The Chinese school kid has spent the last three years giving his best friend a piggyback not just to school, but to all his classes, because Zhang Chi finds it too hard to walk.
Xu also helps his friend with daily tasks that include sorting his washing, cleaning and cooking, and the 18-year-old has gone above and beyond what anyone in his position would usually do, and all to help out his friend who has muscular dystrophy.
The condition makes it almost impossible for 19-year-old Zhang Chi to walk, but thanks to his friend, he hasn’t missed one class.
This guy is our hero and someone we would love to be friends with, and after hearing school vice principle Guo Chunxi called the duo ‘inspiring’, we have to agree.
