What would you pay for to get your hands on an Apple IPad 2?
A kidney was apparently a small price to pay for "Zheng", a 17 year old boy from the southen province of Guangdong China.
The boy stumbled upon an advertisement online asking for kidney donors, negotiated the price, and had his kidney removed at a hospital in the city of Chenzhou.
His mother wasn't too pleased with the Apple gear her son brought back after he got paid for the kidney. She promptly dragged Zheng to the police to report the crime, but the agents who oversaw Zheng's operation were nowhere to be found.
The hospital where Zheng had his operation denies any knowledge of the surgery. Zheng, however, has suffered from complications arising from the operation.
