The pair was filmed at the Jiangxi Provincial Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine. as the frail mother and son waiting patiently for prescriptions.

The son was later identified as police officer Xiong Shuiyuan at the local Donghu bureau, said he didn’t think twice to let his 84-year-old mother rest on his back at the busy hospital, saying: ‘She used to carry me on her back, too, when I was little.’

In an interview a Jiangxi Network Radio and TV Station, Xiong Shuiyuan said that he had just gotten off a overnight shift at the police station and had been accompanying his elderly mother for a regular checkup and he was just ‘doing his part as a son’.

He also said that his mother was getting tired from standing, so he immediately squatted down and asked her to sit on his back as there were no empty seats around.

“I spotted an empty seat after several minutes and helped my mother to it,” he told reporters, admitting that he couldn’t feel his legs after.

“My mother used to carry me around on her back when I was a child, so I’m doing the same. I didn’t expect the overwhelming reaction,’’ he said.

‘’She took care of me, now it’s my turn to take care of her. It’s that simple,’’ he added.
