A 17 year old Chinese boy had decided to sell his kidney for 20,000 Chinese Yuan (about $3,000 USD) so he could buy an iPad, according to the Shanghai Daily. I have no idea what the boy was thinking and if he knew exactly what he was getting into. I can understand when a loved one makes the decision to donate a kidney to a family member or close friend, but how about some stranger on the Internet?
We’re not sure what medium was used to contact the boy, but the boy agreed and the arrangements were made. His mother had no idea about the decision until he came home.
