This is nothing new, this is actually the third time I saw in the news that a Chinese had sold a precious part of its body just to buy an apple product

Selling parts of your body and being a Justin Bieber fan are two incredible things

Oh why?? The iPhone is hardly worth it is it?? I would rather sell my kidney for a Galaxy Note. Not that I'd do that I just think why it's just a phone for feck sake
Phone?? What phone??

It is so sad that some people are willing to risk their health for pointless things that lasts a year or two. If his other kidney fails later he is in serious trouble

Indeed. If he comes into trouble and his other kidney fails then he'd be selling his iPhone to get another kidney back
Phone?? What phone??

Who and where are these kids parents?
This is just pure stupidity for a gadget that will be outdated in a year's time. Why are these kids so materialistic that they are willing to sacrifice a vital organ to get a damn gadget? Makes no sense at all.

There are two kidneys but if you lose one, the other is likely to get old sooner than expected and your life will be shorter. An iphone equals to a few years of your life according to this child. I wonder what he'd do if he lost his iphone. No spare kidney, no iphone and no another body part to sell.

Well said Miss UK!!

These are sad times. This in no way incriminates Apple but it's really bad press. I'll bet Apple executives or human resources committee has already discussed aiding medical attention for this kid yet lawyers have probably advised against this as it would show Apple as partially involved/guilty by perception/and weak as in a target for frivolous lawsuits & fictitious claims for similar non common sense.

Kids are influenced to do very stupid things: lie, cheat, steal, bulimia, anorexia, self mutilation (scarring/burning), etc etc, even date raping.
