It sounds like science-fiction that you might see in an X-Men movie, but Chinese CCTV has just reported on a young boy who can see in the dark. Nong Youhui has bright blue eyes, which is almost unheard of in China, which prompted his father to take him to a hospital in Dahua, southern China.

The doctors were stunned to realize that the boy’s eyes seem to glow in the dark, like a cat, and when given a reading test in the dark, Nong had no trouble reading. Of course, this isn’t the first time someone claimed to have superhuman powers, so don’t get too excited just yet.
