Chinese Student Carries His Disabled Friend To Class For Three Years

This young man literally has his best friend’s back.

For the past three years, Xie Xu, 18, has carried his best friend Zhang Chi, 19, to school every single morning and throughout the day as they travel to classes together. Zhang has muscular dystrophy, a disorder that weakens the muscles over time.




Xie, who is 5’7, has offered his back to Zhang nearly a dozen times daily throughout the school year. The task is entirely a volunteer job, like bringing him all of his meals. But Xie loves it. The partnership extended into their schoolwork, as both of these young men are the top students in their class.

“The story of the two students is so inspiring and touching. They aren’t family, but [Xie] has been doing this for three years. He’s the most beautiful student,” said Guo Chunxi, the vice headmaster of Daxu High School told local media. “He also exerts positive influence on other students, who readily help Zhang. With their assistance, Zhang has never missed out on one single class.”


For the past three years, his classmate, 18-year-old Xie Xu, has carried him to and from classes at Daxu High School to make sure he can get to them on time.


'The story of the two students is so inspiring and touching. They aren't family, but [Xie] has been doing this for three years,' vice-principal Guo Chunxi told Shanghaiist.


'He's the most beautiful student. He also exerts positive influence on other students, who readily help Zhang. With their assistance, Zhang has never missed out on one single class,' the vice-principal said.


Xie carries Zhang to school from their dorm, helps him wash his clothes and fetches his three meals every day.


Xie and Zhang are third year students at their high school. And, despite the challenges, they have been the top students of their class for the past three years.


Xie's dedication is especially important in a country where more than 243,000 children with disabilities are unable to attend school because of inadequate facilities.
