WTF News: Parents Sell Daughter Online to Buy iPhone and Shoes
People never seem to astonish with how low they can actually stoop. In this case, a Chinese couple is facing criminal punishment for allegedly selling their daughter so they could buy an iPhone and shoes. Reports didn't give an exact amount but it's said that they accepted somewhere between 30,000 and 50,000 yuan (£3,000 to £5,000) and used the money for a new iPhone.
Shanghai prosecutors have brought a case against the couple for human trafficking after they put their third child up for adoption through online postings, reports said.
And it wasn't just an iPhone they splashed out on, reports say the mother, whose name has not been released, also bought high-end sports shoes and other products with her large payout.
The couple apparently told the police that they wanted the girl to have a better life than they could provide.
You want your daughter to have a better life so instead of just putting her up for adoption you sell her? Alrighty then.
