Man with cerebral palsy lifts bricks with his teeth to support family – Daily Mail

A man born with cerebral palsy is supporting his less-fortunate family in rural China by lifting bricks with his teeth on a live-streaming platform every day.

Shi Junke, 25, earns tips from his 250,000 online followers with the performance.

His father died four years ago, and he uses his income from the show – about £160 a month – to buy food for his family and pay for tuition fees for his younger sister.

Mr Shi lives in Yiyang in central China’s Henan Province with his mother and 12-year-old sister.

He has another younger sister, who is 18 years old and works in another city.

Mr Shi said he wanted to show the others that he was capable of being the pillar of his family despite his condition. He also said that he wanted to give his mother and sister a better life.

Speaking to local news outlet Dahe.cn, Mr Shi said: ‘I want to prove I am as capable as the others. I also want to earn some money to support (my family’s) life.’

He added: ‘I don’t want donations from the others. I can rely on my own.’

He also learned how to ride an electric scooter so he could transport his mother to the fields to do farm works and carry goods for the family.
