A Xi’an migrant worker, surnamed Wang, had been lying on a street for the last 20 days due to his rheumatic pain. However with the help of a retired traditional Chinese medicine practitioner, he’s been able to stand and even walk, according to Tencent news.
The 80-year-old doctor, named Wang Falin, sees Wang every day and brings him TCM powder to mix into his drink.
Wang said that he lives in a village in Heyang county. He works part-time jobs in Xi’an. However, because he spent all of his money one month ago and wasn’t able to land a job, he’d slept under a footbridge. One day he awoke to find that he couldn’t move. A warm-hearted resident called 120 to send him to a Xi’an hospital for treatment. Unfortunately, he was unable to pay the seven kuai for the meal, so he left the hospital and started sleeping in the open air.
Residents nearby learned of his situation and tried to send him meals and money. When it rained, they helped move him to the shelter of a bank.
Wang is reluctant to tell reporters his full name as he doesn’t want his family to be worried about him. Thankfully, Doctor Wang Falin’s treatment has relieved his pain and now, he can manage to stand up and walk.
