Do Solar-Powered People Exist? These Children Might Tell Us

Doctors are finding it difficult to provide an explanation for why or how three boys seem to be limited by the Sun. More specifically, Shoaib, Rashid, and Ilyas appear to be shutting down in the evening after sunset on a daily basis, becoming “paralyzed.”

According to their father, the boys know when a bout of physical exhaustion is about to overcome them due to the sun setting, so they try to wrap up their days before this happens.

The full story is available over at Dawn, but what do you think? Could this actually be related to the Sun, or is it of psychological origin? Are the “solar kids” real?
