Plucky 11-year-old boy who lost both legs in accident overcomes all obstacles to climb mountains in China

Meet Gao Zhiyi, a 11-year-old whose courage far exceeds his age.

He lost both of his legs in a car accident a few years ago.

Gao has been inspired by 33-year-old Chen Zhou, who lost both of his legs when he was just 13 years old.

However Chen overcame all odds to become a singer, public speaker, and mountain climber.

He has climbed over 100 mountains, including both Huangshan and Mount Tai.

Shanghaiist and China News report that for his ascent up Mount Lao in China, Chen invited Gao to come along.

This was the first time Gao had ever tried to climb a mountain, let alone climb it using two sturdy wooden boxes to push himself upwards.

He made it all the way up to one of the summits, 900 meters in height.
