Here’s the third installment in today’s little quiz.
Three stories – the stolen kidney, the grandmother who gave birth to her daughter’s twins and the toilet roll thief.
One true, two false, but which is which?
The stolen kidney
A 24 year old man from Las Vegas is, today, recovering in hospital after having his kidney removed illegally.
Brian Appleyard – an Ohio salesman, rather than the writer with The Sunday Times (see his comment below) – was in Las Vegas for a sales convention.
After the event he retired to his hotel and went to the bar for a quiet drink.
Whilst there he struck up a conversation with an unidentified blonde woman.
Appleyard said the two of them hit it off immediately and shared several more drinks during the course of the evening.
He later blacked out and woke up in a hotel bath, covered in ice.
He noticed a phone lying on the floor next to the bath with a note attached to it.
The note advised him to call 911 immediately or he would die.
Appleyard called an ambulance and was rushed to hospital where doctors later informed him that he had undergone massive surgery in the hotel.
At some point during the evening he had one of his kidneys removed.
Other similar crimes have been reported in the past in Las Vegas and police there are continuing their investigations into a gang suspected of selling human organs on the black market.
TRUTH or HOAX?
