Man nose inflation keeps away boils

A Chinese man can inflate tyre inner tubes with people standing on them with his nose - thanks to doctor's orders.

Nie Yongbing, 61, was told by a doctor to blow up balloons to "unblock his pathways" to treat boils eight years ago.

Unbelievably, the treatment worked and Mr Nie has moved on to blowing up tyre inner tubes and mattresses.

He now gives demonstrations of his skills to advertise his bakery in China's south-west Sichuan province.

Mr Nie said: "I've been doing this for eight years and never had a problem with boils since I started the treatment.

"It takes me about 20 minutes to pump up a tube with people standing on it.

"Doctors have told me I have an incredibly healthy lung with an enormous capacity which is great."
