A woman from Henan province makes around 200,000 yuan (over $28,000) a year just by crying at strangers’ funerals, which is reportedly considered an ancient tradition in China.
She attends funerals of people she does not know and weeps for them to give the departed one a proper sendoff into the afterlife.
The unnamed woman, who has worked as a paid mourner for more than 20 years, earns around 300 yuan ($42) for 30 minutes of mourning.
She was able to build a house for her family and send her eldest son to a university using the money she earned from her career.
