In April, Nagauker cut a deal with a kidney broker, who promised him a new life and a new kidney for $100,000. It was available only in China, the donor said.
"The broker went to him and suggested that he become a new man. 'Come with me. Two days, $100,000, and two days you will be a new man,' " Schai said.
Today, Schai calls the broker "the killer."
Nagauker's body is rejecting the new kidney.
The family's story is one of several that have come to light in recent weeks as part of a worldwide CNN investigation into what appears to be a widespread black market in human organs, a network now being probed by authorities in Israel and the United States.
Nagauker went to China, where his daughter said he was taken to a rural hospital and given the kidney of an 18-year-old Chinese girl. Schai captured images on her cell phone of her father in what she described as a filthy hospital.
The surgery went poorly, and the girl who donated the kidney died shortly after surgery, Schai said.
"They gave her $5,000, and she died," she said.
The broker has yet to face any sanctions. Until just last year, the entire transaction was not only legal in Israel; some state-sponsored health insurance plans paid for transplants.
Michael," a broker who insists that he operates legally but still wanted to keep his name and face a secret, said Israelis do not like to weaken their own. His mother, he said, needed a kidney and happily agreed to buy one in China rather than receiving a transplant from her own son.

Its an important story no doubt and the truth needs to come out. Just be aware that the woman who wrote the counter punch article works for the Syrian government, and we know they aren't chums with Israel.
Good to see this issue is being buried to easily.
Is it me or is Israel's media Halo starting to slip a little?
Crimes are brought to Justice in Israel. They have prisons in Israel, with Israeli inmates you know.
What people like you do is take every single crime an Israeli commits to justify the "lets hate the jews" agenda.
I wonder how you`d feel if all Americans or America-as-such were made responsible for each crime an American commits.
