If you’re a comic book or superhero fan, you’ve probably dreamt of having special powers of some sort. Fanboy or not, it’s safe to assume that at some point in our lives the majority of us have wished we could fly like a bird, possess super strength, or even read people’s minds. Well, now it appears that one boy in China may exhibit some super powers of his own.
As reported by Dvice earlier today, a story of a Chinese boy who may have cat-like night vision is circulating the internet. Allegedly, the young Chinese boy’s, Nong Yousui’s, eyes are similar to those of a cat, allowing him the uncanny ability to see in the dark.
According to Alien Disclosure Group, doctors were made aware of the boy’s condition when he was two months old after his father inquired about the boy’s unique blue eyes. At the time, doctors assured Nong Shihua, Yousui’s father that there was no cause for concern and the boy would be fine when he got older.
As time progressed and Yousui got older, it became apparent that his eyes were displaying some “special” properties, which according to the video below, troubles the young boy’s vision during the day. His teachers began to notice when outside, Yousui would begin to squint and complain of difficulty seeing, while other the other children around him would not.
Despite his daytime difficulty, Yousui appears to display a superior ability to see at night — apparently he can catch crickets without the need of a flashlight — and when reporters from Heng County Television Station in Guangxi administered a test in which they gave him cards to fill out in a darkly lit room, he was able to do so without any problems. As you can see in the clip, when reporters shined their light on the boy’s eyes they seem to emit a blue-green light similar to a cat’s.
What caused the boy’s eyes to exhibit such special properties? Could Yousui’s eyes be the next step in human evolution, an odd and rare mutation, or simply a hoax? For now, the answer remains unclear.
