Pictures showing an elderly man feeding his wife mouth-to-mouth have recently gone viral on the internet.
Zhang Changshan, the 79-year-old husband from Zhuozhou, Hebei province, has reportedly chewed up his wife’s food and fed it to her during every meal for the past 11 years, since his wife had a stroke and became paralyzed in 2003.
Zhang told reporters that a doctor said she would likely survive for a month after her stroke. Regardless, he took her home and learned traditional Chinese massage techniques to give her massages every day.
She managed to far outlive those expectations, thanks in part to her husband’s care.
