Kidney Theft Allegations Denied

In a story with all the trappings and intrigue of Internet-style urban legend, San José’s CalderónGuardiaHospital denied the allegations of a Canadian tourist who claimed his stay there after an injury resulted in the unauthorized removal and sale of his kidney.

By year’s end, the tourist had not responded to the denials, and the hospital was attempting to collect payment for his treatment.
