Chinese Teen Sells His Kidney For An iPhone And iPad

We've heard people say that they paid an "arm and a leg" to get a new iPhone or iPad, but this is ridiculous.

A teenage boy in China literally sold one of his kidneys so he could buy an iPad and iPhone.

The 17-year-old boy's parents became suspicious when he came home with the costly tech toys.

When they asked how he bought them, he confessed to selling one of his kidneys for $3,500.

Now five people have been arrested in connection with helping him illegally sell his kidney.

One of the defendants made $35,000 after searching for organ donors online and arranging the deal.

So the kid lost a kidney and only got 10% of the sale.

The illegal organ trade is huge in China because there are 1.5 million people awaiting a transplant but only about 10,000 surgeries are performed each year, leaving hundreds of thousands looking for organs.

It's so sad that he cared so much about having these luxury items that he literally shortened his lifespan just to have them.
