We have heard some amazing and shocking stories relating to Apple products, from thieves to muggers,but this by far is the worst. A 17-year-old Chinese boy living in the Anhui province in China sold his kidney for 22,000 yuan, or about $3,400 (INR 1,60,000/-) So that he could buy the iPad 2.

“I wanted to buy an iPad 2 but could not afford it,” the unnamed boy told Shanghai Daily. “A broker contacted me on the Internet and said he could help me sell one kidney for 20,000 yuan.”


He underwent surgery at a Chenzhou hospital. When his parents found out, they notified the police immediately but they have been unable to locate the broker, according to the report. The child now says he regrets his decision.

Make sure the next time you need to buy things you cannot afford, the enjoyment of owning that item, will be a lot less without your crucially important bodily organs.
