Loyal Chinese Student Has Carried His Disabled Friend to School for Over 3 Years

An 18-year-old heroic teenager has been named “the most beautiful student in China.” For over 3 years, Xie Xu has carried his classmate Zhang Chi to school. Zhang can no longer walk because he copes with muscular dystrophy, a disorder that has slowly depleted his skeletal muscles. 

Both boys live in China, a country where over 243,000 children are not able to attend school because of their disabilities. Not only does Xie carry Zhang to school, he also helps him eat his meals and complete daily tasks. Because of this, these admirable friends have maintained their status as the top students in their class.
