Man Without Arms, Feeds Paralyzed Mother Using His Mouth
Chen Xinyin, 48, has had a hard life. He lost his arms after suffering an electric shock at the age of seven, but still started working on the family farm. At the age of 20, his father died, leaving just Chen and his ailing mother to fend for themselves. As his mother got sicker and life got harder, someone suggested that Chen consider begging, but angrily replied, “I have no arms but I have good feet. I can’t go make that sort of money.”
He may have lost his arms, but he used all other parts of his body to live normally. He learned how to cook, weave baskets for a living and tend to their farm. He resides at Chonqing in China where he had to take care of his 91-year-old mother. A real tearjerker is that he had to use his mouth, with the spoon between his teeth, just to feed his mother. The winters are hard for Chen Since he finds it difficult to put socks on, and he often suffers from frostbite.
He tries to maneuver his body in such a way that it would enable him to live normally for the lack of arms. He’s done a remarkable job, don’t you think? How about you, if you were put in this kind of situation, would you be able to survive?
