Chinese Teen Sells Kidney for iPad 2
A 17 year old boy in China surfed the internet and found an ad saying they'll pay RMB20,000 for a kidney that's about $3087.14 in USD. The boy traveled north to the city of Chenzhou in Hunan Province where the kidney was removed at a local hospital that discharged him after three days. The boy's reasoning for selling a kidney was "I wanted to buy an iPad 2, but I didn't have the money" after everything was said and done the boy had a new laptop and apple handset. The boy's mother found out about the deal and was unable to track down the people that bought her sons kidney.
