Chinese reports say that Wu Naiyi who's been dubbed as "Most credible dad" passed away in a hospital in Zhejiang at the age of 85.

The Chinese saying "A child is liable for his father's debts" has been reversed for a man in east China, who has been struggling for 8 years to pay off the debts of three sons killed in a typhoon.

Wu Naiyi and his wife, who live in a fishing village in Wenzhou City, Zhejiang Province, scrimp on food and clothing to keep a promise to pay off the debts, the Yangtze Evening News reported yesterday.

Wu's four sons had raised 1 million yuan (US$152,133) in 2006 to buy fishing boats.
But one trip ended in tragedy with only one son coming back alive when the huge waves triggered by a typhoon swamped their boat.

Wu was determined his sons' debts should be paid.
He sold the other boats and equipment and put the 240,000 yuan insurance toward the debts. To make up the rest, the couple began weaving fishing nets to sell.

In the past 8 years, they managed to pay back 800,000 yuan's debt.
