In 2011, a Chinese teen known only as "Zheng" sold his own kidney in order to buy the Apple iPad 2. After working out a deal with an online organ buyer, Zheng ran away from his family home to the city of Chenzhou in Hunan Province. There, the 17-year old was hospitalized for three days and then discharged - one kidney lighter - with 22,000 RMB (US $3,394) in hand. He blew it all at the Mac store: one iPad, one MacBook and an iPhone.
The next-generation iPad 3 will be released next week. If you're on the blackmarket organ transplant list, get ready for good news.
