Teen Sells Kidney For iPhone And iPad

On Mo’s last day of Soccer Camp, the kids were all crowded around him. I wasn’t sure what was going on.

Then, I heard one kid say, “write down your cell phone number, Twitter, Facebook, Draw Something, and email.”

Huh?????

Mo is 7!!!

On MY  last day of camp, we were exchanging our home addresses to write snail mail letters.

Wow. Things sure have changed.

It seems like our kids are being raised in an iPhone/iPad era.

In China, a teenager sold his kidney so he could buy an iPhone and iPad.

The 17 year old boy now suffers from  renal deficiency.

Five people are charged with intentional injury in the case.

One of the defendants received about 220,000 yuan (about $35,000) to arrange the transplant. He paid the teenager 22,000 yuan for his kidney and split the rest with the surgeon, the three other defendants and other medical staff.

In China iPhones start at 3,988 yuan ($633), and iPads begin at 2,988 yuan ($474).
