An extra-ordinary street sweeper was seen weeping streets in China. He is 69 years old and he is an amputee.

Chengdu, China - A 69-year-old man named Deng Xianguo has been cleaning streets and collecting rubbish on crutches for seven years in spite of being an amputee.


He became an amputee when he had an accident at the age of 19.

He begins working very early everyday at 5:00 o'clock. He cleans a 300-meter street. Aside form cleaning, he also collects trash from all the trashcans along the street.


Deng has to hold his crutch with his left hand while sweeping the street. Its not an easy thing to do at first but as time goes by, he learned the trick on how to do it better.



“I like this job so much because I can earn money and am able to pay my grandchildren’s tuition fees and work out at the same time,” West China Metropolis Daily quoted Deng.

Netizens were inspired, touched and moved because of Deng's deeds and sacrifices. Some people donated food or money when they see them on the street.

As of writing, this inspiring story was shared by more than 300 Facebook users. Commentators also wished that God should bless him for his remarkable act.
