Awful! Boy Sells His Kidney On The Black Market For An iPad!

We know iPads are pretty in demand, but THIS?!

What on Earth is wrong with this world?!

A 17-year-old boy from China reportedly sold one of his kidneys for about $3,200 in order to pay for the Apple product!

Only identified by his last name, Zheng, the boy apparently contacted an ad on-line offering cash for potential organ donors, but after suffering complications from the surgery, he told his mother what happened, and she notified the authorities!

He said:

"I wanted to buy an iPad 2, but I didn't have the money. When I surfed the internet I found an advert posted online by agent saying they were able to pay RMB20,000 (£2,000) to buy a kidney."

His mother then told the police:

"When he came back, he had a laptop and a new Apple handset. I wanted to know how he had got so much money and he finally confessed that he had sold one of his kidneys."

The hospital in which the surgery took place admitted to renting out space to a private businessman, but have denied any knowledge of the surgery.

Oh, that's comforting! How on Earth could something this heinous be happening under so many people's noses?!

Absolutely deplorable! Sickening!

We sincerely hope that not only does this young man realize how foolish and potentially life-threatening his actions have been, but that he doesn't have any more serious complications from the surgery.

Furthermore, may this raise people's awareness to these kind of goings-on, so these kind of back-alley surgeries can be prevented in the future!

So scary.

  2. 2

    Stupid. Should have gotten it out professionally. And yes he's 17 but he's old enough to make decisions for himself, no matter how stupid they may seem. At least he has a spare. LOL



  3. 3

    I am a huge fan of being able to get rid of organs whenever and for whatever one pleases. Sure, a minor should be prohibited, but as far as my old ass is concerned, it's my last resort! If I ever need some money, I got a kidney!!



  4. 4

    He's 17 not 5 he knew what he was doing he's just a dumbass!!



  5. 5

    what a idiot he could of been dead bye now he lucky to be alive this what happens when people get controlled or desire way to much materialistic possessions.



  6. 6

    So he is just another person in this world who deosnt want to work for anything. Instead of getting a job and saving for a kidney he wanted the quick and fast way. it is the totaly instant gratification thing - he got what he deserved i dont feel sorry for him at all



  7. 7

    lucky he didn't just wake up near a major airport in an abandoned warehouse in a bathtub of ice, ipas cost what four five hundred dollars and the surgeons aren't kind

    Poor misquided kid. He should have spoken to his parents first and always. It probably seemed like a quick solution to him, with his undeveloped teen judgement. Sadly, any number of on the level philanthropic business people might have been happy to help him out had he written a moving letter or agreed to intern for free over the summer.

    This sounds like it should be a south park episode :) .stupid kid.

    'The hospital in which the surgery took place admitted to renting out space to a private businessman, but have denied any knowledge of the surgery.'
    I bet you that this 'businessman' is trading organs and probably sold the kidney from that stupid kid for a lot more money.



  16. 16

    What a fucken idiot, I hope he at least got the 3G version



  17. 17

    After reading this I think there may be hope for you yet Perez, maybe someone will donate a dick so you can have a sex life!



  18. 18

    this kid must have an awesome social life! i mean..it HAS to be, if he's selling a kidney for an ipad…..right?



  19. 19

    i mean buying an ipad

    Mario, again you've totally missed the point… The real issue here is not the black market organ trade. That's been going on for years, it's nothing new. What is disgusting though is the fact that a little boy in China wants an object so bad he's willing to torture himself for it. The kid made a bad decision but the blame lies with American culture, where consumerism is revered and exported. American culture is invading the world and bringing with it bad manners, wrong values, unhealthy food, and a desire for things that will supposedly bring happiness to your life. It's all smoke and mirrors and corporate America is guilty.



  21. 21

    it happened in China, is anyone really surprised?!?! the kid knowingly lost a kidney and gained an ipad and a world of hurt and someone else just paid $10k for a slightly used black market kidney, sounds like everybody won!….kinda



  22. 22

    Man, that's crazy. I don't have an I anything. I get by fine with my cheap cell phone, my cheap MP3 player, and my old ass computer. No need to get all crazy kid.

    I hope they throw the book at these organ donor on line cash offers if they contract anyone under the age of majority. For this type of thing, it ought to be over age 25.



  24. 24

    hoax



  25. 25

    FAKE



  26. 26

    in most states a 17-year-old is NOT considered an adult and therefore is also NOT able to enter into ANY type of binding contract. it is illegal to enter into a contract with a minor child (under 18).

    I don't feel sorry for stupid people.
