He developed renal deficiency which was caused by a number of things. Post-operative care led to an infection which caused his other kidney to fail.
14They called the police
Watching her son’s health worsen and seeing the expensive Apple products he got made his mother wonder what had happened. He did not shy away from telling her the truth and they called the cops immediately. Luckily, they were able to apprehend a total of nine people including the three middlemen and the two doctors. They were all charged with illegal organ trading and intentional injury.
15They won the case
His family pressed charges against the accused and won the case even though Shangkun was too weak to attend the trial. The family was awarded a compensation of 1.47 million RMB. The middlemen were sentenced to three to five years in prison, while the doctors received a three-year sentence each. This was a great victory for the family but at a huge cost.
16Shangkun’s life is now worse
