The sales of human organs is a growing issue in China and the government has so far failed to eliminate the practice.
There have been many reports of "transplant tourists" who come from rich countries to buy much-needed organs from the poor, desperate people.
The black-market trade is driven by the fact that there are many times more people waiting for organs than there are legitimate organ donors.
Kompas reported that a high school student in China's Anhui province, Xiao Zhang, has reportedly sold one of his Kidneys for 20,000 Yuan (US$ 3,170.00) so that he could buy an Apple iPad 2.
The student's mother later discovered the iPad 2 and forced him to reveal how he was able to afford to buy it. He then confessed that he was motivated to sell the Kidney after seeing an internet advertisement offering cash to people who want to become organ donors.
Afterward, the mother and son report the matter to the Police, however the agents who had organized the organ trade cannot be found. Police are reportedly trying to track down the buyers.
This is a tragedy, and I hope that it would not happen in Indonesia or other countries
