A photo of a young woman trudging in ankle-deep rainwater carrying a well-dressed man on her back in Wuhan, Hubei Province is making the rounds on Chinese social media.
The relatively petite woman was photographed sloshing across a flooded intersection with a well-built man on her back in suit pants, leather shoes and carrying a briefcase after heavy rains pounded the provincial capital on June 7, causing flooding and gridlock throughout the city, according to news.ifeng.com.
The photo went viral on Sina Weibo only hours after it was posted. Many commented there must be a "rational explanation," such as "maybe the man's shoes are expensive", or "the man has to look decent for an important meeting."
But most Web users complimented the woman. "I'd marry such a caring woman if I met one," said one commenter.
BTW, nice purse, dude.
Metrosexuals in China. Who knew?
It’s a “ briefcase “ according to the story . Lots of Asians inc. Japanese carry similar cases .
My guess is that this man is in PC terms a mentally challenged individual who got confused by the flood and the woman helped him out .
"It's a satchel, not a purse. Indiana Jones carries one."

I’ll bet this guy sits down when he pees.
Maybe the lady works for the dude and was piling up points.
Satchel a very useful item , especially these days in the age of with Ipads , Ipods , digital cameras , cellphones etc...being carried around .
It’s been ‘Shopped, IMO.
I find it hard to believe that such a slender woman could carry that beefy guy. This is not real.
Anybody got her name and phone number?
