Summary The Primetime Live team was "able to document and expose an illegal black market, trafficking in human body parts harvested from executed Chinese prisoners, for sale here in the United States. (The) story began in a luxury hotel suite in Manhattan and led to a restricted military hospital in the Chinese province of Guangzhou, as (the) reporters documented the sale of a prisoner's kidney with the use of hidden cameras, rare eyewitness accounts and a graphic video smuggled out of China of actual executions by firing squad."
