The story of this 8-year-old boy from China is something that will tear your heart into pieces. In order to reach his Zhuanshanbao Primary School in the town of Xinjie (Yunna Province) and take an exam, he religiously walked 4.8 kilometers. Even the -9 degrees Celsius cold did not scare him away.
Nicknamed by the Internet as “Ice Boy,” his story quickly went viral online. People began to contact his school, trying to help in any way possible just to improve its learning conditions for him and other students. The headmaster of the primary school named Fu Heng was surprised upon seeing the kid.
His head and eyebrows were covered in ice, with his cheeks burning red. He was the one who snapped a picture of the boy and shared it on social media. Afterwards, the school quickly received thousands of donations, some heating equipment, and warm sets of clothes.
Heng said that it happened on the first day of their exams. Unfortunately, the temperature that time dropped to -9 degrees Celsius. The headmaster also claimed that the boy is dubbed as their “class clown,” as he always finds a way to make his classmates laugh hard.
