Boy with Night Vision

A young Chinese boy who was born with beaming blue eyes has stunned medics with his ability to see in pitch black darkness.

The footage of Nong and his strange-looking eyes originally surfaced in 2009; it got little attention at the time, but is now making a splash all over the Web. If the boy really does have a genetic mutation that confers night vision, then he would be an interesting subject for analysis by vision scientists, evolutionary biologists, and genetic engineers alike — but does he?

Pretty extraordinary mutation. I wonder if this is really true.
