A Chinese schoolboy's fate has caught the attention of millions of people after a picture of his icicle hair became widely shared online.
The child, from rural China, had just spent more than an hour walking 4.5 kilometres (2.8 miles) to school on a harsh winter morning, according to reports.
Wearing a thin layer of clothes, the boy braved minus nine degree weather to sit an exam yesterday in a small town in Shaotong, southern China's Yunnan Province.
The boy is said to be a third-grade pupil at the Zhuanshanbao Primary School in Xinjie Town, Ludian County, reported People's Daily Online.

Happy kids, despite their poverty. Western society is rich in everything except joy.
