He stole a lung!

Have you ever seen or heard of Body Worlds, that famous exhibit of plastified human bodies (volunteers, of course) displayed for the public to see? 

Well it came to Lima, Peru. And it will leave with one less lung. 

Someone pilfered a plastified human lung. Newspaper Peru21 says that Body Worlds, or "El cuerpo humano: real y fascinante," yesterday offered US$2,000 for the recovery of the missing lung.

What was this exhibit robber planning to do with a plastic lung? Put it on the mantle in the living room? 

I have to ask: what would that volunteer--who gave their body to science--feel if they found out that their lung was missing?
