Chinese Boy “Sells Kidney to Buy iPad”


Chinese media are reporting that a youth was so desperate for an iPad that he sold a kidney to pay for one.

The 17-year-old boy, a resident of Anhui province, reportedly came upon online information describing how he could hawk a kidney over the Internet – just what he needed, as he was in need of cash to buy an iPad 2.

He arranged such a sale, and had the organ removed in a Funan province hospital, receiving some 22,000 yuan ($3,500) in cash. His surgery complete, he returned home with his new iPad and various other gadgets.

However, knowing him to be broke, his mother became suspicious on seeing what he had bought, suspecting perhaps that he was up to no good. She confronted him, and he soon confessed to having sold a kidney.

His mother immediately reported the matter to police, but the organ dealer was nowhere to be found and the hospital identified claimed it knew nothing about the deal and in any case had no facilities for conducting such an operation. The whereabouts of the kidney are unknown.

The youth has his iPad, but is said to regret having sold a kidney on the black market to get it. It seems unlikely he will see his missing kidney again.

    Don't see the hype with the Ipad. It's just a bigger Ipod and you don't look cool holding around a huge picture frame. It's impractical here in the asian countries too. Why? Because walking around using your Ipad, you leave your two arms defenseless and some can snatch it away from your bare hands and voila good bye Ipad. It's not like US wherein you can freely use it anywhere. This is asia.

    i hear those things called, what was it?....pureesuteishon porutaburu? well they can do pretty much anything, i think they've been out a while. it says you can watch videos, listen to music, view pictures, surf the internet, and hack the fck out of it. plus you dont look like an idiot balancing a serving tray on his hand while trying to type something in. touch screens are a pain, we need to wait for those holographic input panels, because once you drop an ipad, you're out $500.

    Still not worth it. Lonesnipa, do you think you would DO all of that in your journey? Reading books during your, say, traveling in train/taxi/tram/what not? If you want to read comic, you can wait till you reach home. If you want to listen to music, tons of cheaper, smaller, and no less efficient gadgets. If you want to read books, buy one and keep it in your bag. It's not that hard, see?

    You just have been totally hypnotized by those commercials and a victim of trend.

    Ipads are worth it, if you do things like, say, read books. Also useful for musicians. Reading manga is great on an ipad as well. Why? Well, on an ipad you can carry around several thousand books, all your music, and as much manga as you can download and stick on there making it much easier to carry around. This would be especially useful for musicians who have several binders full of music, those things weight a LOT.

    Just get a Kindle or another e-reader if all you're using it for is books and manga. Most E-readers can play music as well anyway. If you're looking for an actual Tablet computer, don't make me laugh, iPad is shit tier.

    Leeeets see here. Retardation all round from the anons I see. Could one of you post on a registered account and grow some fucking balls? I will still defend using the ipad for reading, because none of you have said anything worth argueing about. Also to the dude who said I should use the apps, of course I do you dumb fuck, when did I ever say I didn't? I of course use my ipad for reading all the time when I'm traveling around. I should also point out that I never mentioned music, so bringing that up was retarded as well, and if I wanted to wait till I got home to read MANGA not comics I would do that, but why the fuck should I? I have an ipad that I can carry around several hundred volumes of manga and can pick and choose from. Besides, one other use for the ipad is the ability to write when I'm not at home. Take notes. Not have to carry around a laptop. Fuck you anons are so godamn dumb.

    Oh, as a side note, including january, 200 hours reading just from kobo, not counting my manga reader. So, fuck you idiots.

    A pdf reader can do just as much as far as books go, for cheaper the price. Using iPad for books only is not worth the price. You need to do more with the iPad. Like using the apps.

    Not really, they actually try/hope not to get caught. Only psychopaths don't take the consequences of their actions into account.

    not reallly no, smart rapists dont get caught. Same with anything else that is a crime. For example i remember i read about a male sex idol he lived a long and happy life fucking school girls, he died happily in a threesome with 2x underage girls from a stoke when he was old.

    $3500 dollars? that's really cheap for a young healthy kidney. He should have went prowling intensive care units in hospitals and personally offering dialysis patients a change to live without dialysis. someone would have paid a hell lot more than $3500.

    well technically, many parts that apple uses are manufactured IN China by a Chinese company (foxconn), so is it any wonder that macbooks and the like explode like time bombs?

    Explode indeed. Waiting for it. Shall we start bets on when the story will come in?

    If I were to sell a kidney, I'd get something awesome. Like several sheets of graphene or something. Lol
