    Chinese loansharks attempt to force man to sell kidney to pay back debts

    SHANGHAI, China (AP) - Talk about extracting 500 grams of flesh.

    Alleged loansharks tried to force a Shanghai man to sell one of his kidneys to pay back a 30,000 yuan ($4,750 Cdn) debt, the Shanghai Daily reported Thursday. The two men kidnapped habitual gambler Lu Ronfeng and demanded doctors at a city hospital remove the organ, the Shanghai Daily reported Thursday.

    Turned away, they decided to take him to the inland province of Anhui for the operation, but Lu escaped in the hospital parking lot and ran to a policeman.

    One of the alleged loansharks, Li Shenghe, was arrested on the spot and has been charged with illegally holding Lu, it said. Li denied trying to make Lu sell his kidney. His accomplice escaped.

    Not in America, fortunately. If it wasn't illegal, it might catch on.
    This is my opinion, and change is good.
