Chinese man in underwear kneels on Beijing street asking passerbys to hit him -- all to raise money for son's eye operation

A Chinese man in his underwear was spotted kneeling down in the streets of Beijing, China, asking for passerbys to cane his bottom in exchange for 10 yuan (SGD$2) -- all to raise money for his son’s eye operation. 

The desperate man had apparently travelled all the way from Chongqing to Beijing in the hopes of getting his 1-year-old son treated for his congenital eye disorder, reports The Coverage.

Due to the impoverished state of their family, the man could not afford the 100,000 yuan (SGD$20737) needed for the hospital fees, prompting him to come up with another way to raise the sum. 

There truly are few things as selfless as fatherly love.
