Netizens praise blind girl's mom as her 'invisible guardian'

By Wang Zhihan

A screenshot of the video taken by Cheng Ying shows her daughter Xiao Ying crossing the road alone.

Videos secretly shot by a mother of her visually impaired daughter shopping alone have gone viral on Douyin, China's TikTok, and received millions of “likes."

The girl, 10-year-old Xiao Ying, lives in southwest China's Chongqing and has congenital binocular blindness.

After learning the condition was incurable, her mother, Cheng Ying, started training her to use a "blind crutch," or walking cane, to improve her life skills, The Paper reported today.

In the spring of 2020, Xiao Ying ventured out alone for the first time. She shopped at a steamed bun outlet hundreds of meters away from her home, a journey that required her to cross a road.
