This Devoted Father Carries His Son 18 MILES To School Every Day. He Refuses To Give Up On Him

March 11, 2014

A dad from China's Yibin county walks his son to a school 4.5 miles away. He has to carry his son the entire way because his arms and legs are twisted and his back is hunched. But this father refuses to give up on him.

After he drops off his son at school, Yu Xukang then walks to work and carries his son back home. And the route is no easy task up and down hills.

Each day is an 18 mile round trip because he couldn't find a school near where they lived that would accept his son. He estimates he has walked around 1,600 miles up and down hills backwards and forwards since he started counting. But to him, it's all worth it.

"My son with his disabilities is not in a position to walk on his own and it also means that he can't ride a bike. Despite being 12 he's just three feet tall. But I am proud of the fact that he is already top of his class and I know he will achieve great things. My dream is that he will go to college."
