  • Chinese Prosecutors Finally Pressing Charges After Teen Sells Kidney for iPad



    Last year the story of a teenager in Southern China selling one of his kidneys in order to purchase and iPad made its way through the headlines. Now, nearly a year later Chinese prosecuters have charged five people in an intentional injury case.

    The boy, only referred by his surname Wang, now suffers from renal deficiency and his condition is deteriorating. The surgeon who performed the surgery and four others are being prosecuted according to the government-run Xinhua News Agency.

    Wang—from the extremely poor province of Anhui an extremely poor province— used the money gained from the selling of his Kidney to purchase an iPhone and iPad. Wang admitted to having the surgery after his mother questioned about where he got the money for his iPad and iPhone.

    With only a fraction of the people who need organ transplants able to get them, a black market for human organs has emerged. Those who can afford it engage in “transplant tourism” where patients travel to other countries for the necessary operations. Others are forced to extremes, and can be prosecuted as China banned the trading of human organs in 2007.

      Very sorry for this.... but can you imagine the immense face palm when he discovered that there wasn't any reception.
