China Red Cross rejects suicide victim's last wish to donate organs: Xinhua
BEIJING (AFP) - A man who texted police in China to donate his body and organs to science before hanging himself was denied his final wish because he had not applied in advance, official media said on Wednesday.
"I have decided to donate my body and all my organs to charity. When you receive my message, I will already be dead. Sorry for bothering you," said the message to police, quoted by the official Xinhua news agency.
The man, surnamed Wang, was later found hanging from an air conditioning unit outside his house in Hangzhou, in the eastern province of Zhejiang, it reported.
Wang, 30, suffered from muscular dystrophy, police said. A wheelchair was found by his side with a walking stick and two notes.
