    A 38-year-old unemployed man from Vienna has offered to sell one of his kidneys for 150,000 euros ($246,507) to fund the purchase of an apartment, a report said overnight.

    "Special offer. Who needs my kidney? Healthy, non-smoker. Fixed price: 150,000 euros," ...read the advertisement he posted in the city's underground railway network, Heute newspaper reported.

    The man named only as Josef V told the newspaper he hoped to buy an apartment in Vienna, lease it to someone else and live off the proceeds so he would not have to seek work.

    A television program about kidney donors gave him the idea, he said.
