An Ipad can cost you a kidney

It's a amazing the kind of length some people will go to get what they want, well at least for this 17yr old boy in China who sold his kidney just so he could get the money to buy an Ipad 2. The boy had it done through an illegal agent which he had saw through an advert on the internet. Offering money in exchange for a kidney donation, which to be sold on the black market. Well he got what he wanted in the end however the worrying thing was the operation was carried out at a clinic that was not qualified to perform such operation, and if things went wrong it could've cost him his life instead. The surgeons who performed the operation ran off I believe. His mother only found out afterwards. Definitely not worth it.
