Freezing Temp…… As Boy’s Hair Freezes After Mile Of Walk To School

A boy turned up to class with frozen hair this week after walking three miles to school in freezing temperatures.

The 10-year-old, who has been dubbed ‘Snowflake Boy’ after hitting headlines overnight, walked the long journey in a bid to sit his exams.

The picture, which has now gone viral on social media, was taken by Fu Heng, headmaster of Zhuanshanbao primary school in Xinjie Township, China.

Fu said he decided not to reveal the boy’s name but did say that he was one of their third-grade pupils.

The photo showing the red-cheeked schoolboy with a full head of white icy hair was taken right after he had stepped into the classroom at the rural school.

Fu said: ‘It was the first day of their final exams. The temperatures dropped to minus nine degrees Celsius in about 30 minutes that morning.’

The headmaster said the boy lives a fair distance from the school, and that he is known as the ‘class clown’, always finding a way to make his 16 classmates laugh

The boy sadly does not live with his parents, as they are both working in larger cities to earn higher wages.

He is living with several siblings and elderly relatives.

Fu said the school provides him and others like him with breakfast but admitted that their classrooms were not yet equipped with heating due to a lack of funding.
