A Chinese father, desperate for money, has a heart-rending plea to passersby on a street in Beijing: they may hit him on his buttocks in exchange for 10 yuan ($1.45), so he can accumulate enough money to pay for his son’s operation.
Wearing only his boxers, the dad can be found kneeling in the frigid weather, right next to a metro station in central Beijing. He held up a wooden stick, offering strangers to hit him for a small amount of money. According to the Mirror (via South China Morning Post), his wife sat by his side, with their one-year-old son who has a congenital eye disorder.
