A little boy spotted delivering goods in eastern China has gone viral after his pictures surfaced on the Chinese social media app WeChat.
The boy, nicknamed Xiaochangjiang or “Little Yangtze River,” just turned 7.
Until recently, he worked as a courier in Qingdao, Shandong Province.
Last week, he delivered goods to a man named Wang Qingwei, Sina News reported.
Wang was surprised after seeing who knocked on his door to deliver his package!
“He handed me a big package with some difficulty and asked me to sign a confirmation receipt,” China Daily quoted Wang as saying.
Wang, who happens to be the director of the Qingdao Chess Association, took Xiaochangjiang’s photos and shared them on social media.
He then asked him to rest after seeing that his hands were red due to the cold.
Wang also gave the young boy a chess set, and invited him to come again and learn to play when he can.
It was revealed that Xiaochangjiang’s father already died while his mother remarried.
He has been living with Yan Shifang, a former colleague of his father, in a makeshift building in the city.
Thankfully, local authorities have launched an investigation after the boy’s story broke out, and are now searching for his mother.
In the meantime, Xiaochangjiang was sent to a local welfare house, which promised to look after him and his schooling.
He also received donations from kind-hearted people.
The young boy held his seventh birthday — his very first celebration — at the welfare house on Sunday.
