A teacher in central China takes his paralysed 88-year-old mother to school everyday, state media reported.

Chen Yongqing teaches at a rural primary school in Gu county, Shaanxi province, and lives with his elderly mother, according to Xinhua. Chen’s wife has been a migrant worker in a faraway city since 2013, leaving him to care for his mother alone.

He had special seating fitted to his motorcycle that allowed him transport his mother to work 5km from their home.

Even when he is busy grading his pupil’s assignments, Chen’s mother rests in a bed next to his desk where he can tend to her needs.

The report said Chen had become local celebrity for his rare level of filial piety.
