Bizarre photos have emerged of a woman in Wuhan carrying her boyfriend to make sure that he wouldn't ruin his expensive shoes, reports the People's Daily Online.
Wuhan in Hubei province has been hit hard by the heavy rains and flooding in the country.
The waters are deep, reaching above her ankles.
She can be seen looking down while her boyfriend laughs while also looking a little embarrassed.
The woman told Chinese media: 'I am wearing sandals so it doesn't matter that I cross the waterlogged area.
He was wearing leather shoes which have to be washed laboriously [if they are soaked]. So it was easier that I carry him to cross the water.'
The pictures have been widely shared on social media.
On CCTV News' Facebook page, many people have criticsed the man for being so selfish.
Randy Leyva wrote: 'He can remove the shoes and let his girlfriend carry the shoes and his girlfriend would be safe from feeling wet.'
Zahidul Islam Khan commented: 'If he think he is a man then I feel shame as a man. Undoubtedly that girl is very modest.'
Zahidul Islam Khan 评论道：“如果他认为他是一个男人，那我将为我是一个男人而感到羞愧。毫无疑问这位女孩非常的端庄美丽。”
Astrid Ann said: 'I wonder why they never thought of removing the man's shoes instead.'
Astrid Ann 说道：“我不明白为什么他们从来没想过脱掉这个男人的鞋代替？”
Wuhan is one of the worst hit cities after flooding has devastated parts of China.
According to the Office of the State Flood Control and Drought Relief Headquarters, over 180 people have been killed in the country-wide flooding.
I guess his IQ prevents him from taking his darn shoes off. And she is an idiot for even carrying his dumb @$$...
This being the second story of this type in as many days (first being the one with the female reporter), I just wonder: are people unaware that shoes are removable? You take them off and carry them until you're past the water, OK?
As Arnold would say, "He's a girlyman."
Because he couldn't take his shoes off?

Mummy's little boy likes to be carried and keep out of the nasty water. Good luck with that, girlfriend!
He is stupid for wearing expensive shoes in a flooded zone.
