He was spotted at a local market asking passersby for spare change, according to Shanghaiist.
But something about his over-sized clothes and “bulky” waist had some pedestrians wondering if he really was legless.
Some suspicious locals tracked him down into a narrow alley where a shocking event of transformation unfolded before their eyes.
As it turned out, the “legless” beggar had two functional legs after all.
