    And his parents are going after the guy who bought it. They should have a look at their own parenting skills first. They didn't notice he'd had a kidney out? What, he did it himself in the shed with a penknife?!?

    From the provided photo, I wouldn't put that out as a possibility.

    They want it back because he's now sick. I'm guessing it was a problem with the removal though.

    What an idiot. And he only got $3,000 for it. Hell, I wouldn't sell one of my kidneys if someone offered me $300,000 for it.

    Wow. I'd rather live long with no electronics than live a few months with an out of date electronic device .___.

    This story is part of a much bigger picture. The black market for human organs in China is getting worryingly active and this kid just happened to get suckered in to it. The only reason it's even been covered in the news here is because they can make it sound like he just wanted an iPad when really they should be discussing the issue as a whole.

    ...he also bought a laptop ;)

    Who here hasn't ever said they would give their left kidney for the latest high tech gadget before? This kid actually did it :D

    Maybe he thought it's okey to sell his kidney because if he ever needed it , there must be an app for that out there!:)

    I've had a brilliant week. Managed to get a kidney transplant, and even get rid of my faulty iPad.
