Teen Who Sold His Kidney for an iPhone is Now Bedridden for Life

A Chinese teen is now bedridden for life after he sold his kidney on the blackmarket for an iPhone.

Wang Shangkun was 17-years-old when he made the fateful decision to sell his organ to black market harvesters for an iPhone 4 and an iPad 2. Now, at 25, he has begun to suffer failures in his remaining kidney, forcing him to remain bedridden.

The illegal surgery had caused him to develop renal deficiency which is believed to have led to an infection due to the unsanitary setting of where it took place. 

Shangkun has stated previously that he wanted the products to show off to friends, but lived in very poor conditions, turning to the illegal organ trade for some money.
