The young men suffered from pain caused by their disease.

They also suffered from the economic downturn, as their family was unable to pay for proper medical care.

Their parents, sold most of their belongings for the medical treatment and for the search of two matching kidneys to save their son's lives.

Their father was not a match, so he was unable to donate his kidney. Their mother was not well enough, rendering her unable to donate.

Hongtao Gao no longer wanted to be a burden to his family.

In desperation, and out of love for his older brother, he ingested pesticides to end his life.

He was found with a note in his pocket saying: "Mom and Dad, I'm sorry, but I had to do this so I can save my brother."

A note to his older brother read: "As long as you are cured in time, then I will be happy.”

The teen’s dying wish was honored and the kidney was successfully transplanted into his brother during a six hour surgery.

The older brother, who is now recovering, is happy to be healthy, but said: "I would be much happier if my brother was alive.”

(Scroll down for video) A police officer arrested a man on suspicions of theft.

Officer Barry Evans of Durham, England, was driving the suspect from Leeds to Darlington, in a BMW 330 police car.

While being transported to jail, the suspect asked the officer how fast his squad car can travel.

Rather than just answering his question, the officer decided to show off. He began speeding at 140 miles per hour.

The suspect decided to get revenge of the arresting officer.

As soon as they reached the prison, he informed a custody officer
of the incident.

After an investigation, officer Evans was suspended, but was not prosecuted.

However, he is expected to return to duty after an extensive investigation is carried out and he is deemed fit for the job once again.

Road safety campaigners condemned the decision not to prosecute the officer for his irresponsible actions.

“The law allows police, ambulance and fire service drivers to exceed the speed limit, but only in emergencies,” they said.

“The officer is a highly skilled driver and there was no suggestion the vehicle was driven dangerously at any time. The officer’s conduct prior to the incident had been exemplary,” a police spokesperson said.

Sheriff Arpaio tried to eat the bread and he was not able to eat more than one bite. However, he will force the inmates to live on the bread.

Nutraloaf contains vegetables and protein. Each slice has more than 1,000 calories.
