a hamster purchase. Go ahead and guess which results in a fatality
That is somewhat misleading since the man who died received a diseased liver from a woman who owned the hamster that had the disease. It's not as if the man who died bought the hamster, and it is unclear from the story if the dead woman who donated the diseased liver actually died from that disease or something else. I doubt her liver would have been given to a recipient if she had died from the disease she supposedly contracted from the hamster since surely the hospital would have diagnosed the cause of her death and taken her off the donor list.
