A 17-year old boy, identified by the surname Zheng in the Anhui Province in eastern China sold one of his kidneys to buy an iPad 2 tablet. Zheng searched over the Internet and found a buyer who offered to pay 22,000 yuan ($3000) for the organ.
Zheng reports, I wanted to buy an iPad 2 but could not afford it. A broker contacted me on the Internet and said he could help me sell one kidney for 20,000 yuan.’The report states that the operation was carried out in Chenzhou on 28th April and his parents knew nothing about it. Zheng’s mother grew suspicious when he returned home with an iPad 2 and an iPhone in his hand. When she successfully forced him to reveal the truth, she filed a complaint to the police immediately. The police could not locate the broker whose cell phone was switched off. The case is under investigation now.
This is what you call heights of stupidity!
