17-year-old high school student sell kidney to buy iPad 

Zheng, a 17-year-old high school student in China’s Anhui province, told a local newspaper “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 kidney was removed and Zheng received the equivalent of some $3,000. His mother was surprised to see him bring home a costly Apple tablet and notified the authorities.
