China Boy’s Eyes Stolen by Thieves

china-eye-thieves

The case of a 6-year-old boy who had both his eyes plucked out so thieves could steal his corneas is the latest to outrage and disgust China.

Chinese media reports that a 6-year-old boy playing outside his Shanxi province home suddenly disappeared, only reappearing later that night collapsed in a field, where he was taken to hospital.

Police say he was kidnapped by unknown individuals, who plucked out both his eyes and left them with him in the field, minus their corneas.

As only the corneas were taken there is a strong suspicion they were stolen for sale on China’s illegal human organ market, and police are looking for a woman suspected of involvement.

The incident, extreme even by the standards of China, has been provoking a strong reaction online:

“This is too much!”

“If they really did this for money the country is finished…”

“This is like some horror film.”

“This must be the work of some psychopath?”

“It is utterly sickening.”

“This is the country where you wake up missing a kidney if you have surgery at their hospitals.”

“Japan’s horror movies have nothing on everyday life in China.”

“If it is for trade at least just take one eye.”

“That poor family!”

“Amazing that the boy survived the shock if they used no anaesthetic.”

“This is utterly bestial.”

“Even for China this is terrifying…”

    I certainly didn't see this kind of atrocity coming...

    I've heard of stealing organs, but why the eyes?

    What value do they see in them?

    I dont know if I will get down vote but I have to confess that I don't know either. Come on, I grew up in a healthy environment and I don't know a damn thing regarding to which part of someone's body worth how much money and I don't need to know that either. (well, not until now)

    You should know about what parts of the body people use in transplants. At least the comon ones like cornea, heart, liver, etc.

    He is lucky he DOESN'T know about the worth of every organ and how far people are willing to go for a bit of money.

    The reported incident has misinformation... again.

    A woman drugged the kid and plucked out both his eyes, but the corneas are not stolen.

    No, initially, the authorities reported that they were stolen. Later, they changed the story, though that seems likely to just be their government's attempt at damage control over all the notice their widespread illegal organ trade received from the story.

    Because stealing kidneys is too mainstream.

    Corneas are very good replacement organs for cataract sufferers. Also, because corneas are typically out of reach from blood vessels, there's a much lower chance of transplant rejection.

    This makes no sense considering it's an incredibly fast procedure to replace clouded lenses in the eye with artificial ones.

    The post says what they were after... If you can't even bother to read Sankaku's text, you may have a problem...

    with today's tech, we can easily make artificial corneas though.

    cornea has nothing to do with cataract.

    You should watch Ray the Animation. Then you'll see what sort of value eyes have in the black market organ trade.

    I would not be too sure about that. This very well could have happened in America as well, it is just sheer luck that it did not.

    Retard, organ traffic doesn't exist only in China. We should pluck out your eyes and give them to the boy.

    We know it doesn't only happen in China. It's the brutality of what was done, plus the inability of the afflicted to do anything about it that is the issue here.

    In Slumdog Millionaire the thugs using homeless children to earn money pluck the eyes out of the boys, as random pedestrians are more giving to child beggars with permanent disabilities.

    Too bad that they get more clicks being a tabloid and troll baiting than focussing on anime, manga, figures and cute/sexy girls.

    I'm Chinese, living in Hong Kong.

    Please drop a bomb on China and blow it up, if you happen to kill me along with the blast, that's ok. People who are inhuman enough to do this sort of shit need to be wiped off the face of the Earth.
