Legless acrobat follows his dream

A former shoeshine boy who was born without legs is following his dream of becoming an acrobat.

Lv Li, 30, from Shidao County, Dengfeng, Henan Province, now makes a living by performing acrobatic stunts in the street.

Lv's ambition is to be admitted to an acrobatic troupe - although he says he will be happy to continue performing on the street if he's unsuccessful.

"I love acrobatics, and I feel happy when doing it," he said.

"My health is not so good these days, and the cities are getting stricter with street performers. But I will carry on for as long as I can."

His routine, which includes handstands, snake charming, and fire-breathing, regularly attracts big crowds in the cities where he performs across the region.

His determination to overcome his disability has moved many people who have seen him perform, including a businessman who says his example stopped him from taking his own life.

The man, who was depressed after his wife had an affair, said: "I thought that if a disabled person could live so positively, how could I have any reason to give up on life?"
