Girl turns in huge cash stash to police

A GIRL in Chongming District discovered 510,000 yuan (US$79,050) and turned it in to police, which attracted massive attention online, Shanghai Morning Post has reported.

Zhang Xiaoxi, a student at Chongming Jianshe Primary School, discovered the money in an abandoned bedside table when she and her younger brother Zhang Zichen were walking their dog.

They told their mother and grandmother but no one believed them at first, because the amount of money was so large. “I couldn’t believe anyone would leave so much money there, so I told them it must be just paper,” said the mother, Wang Guangna.

Zhang Xiaoxi then decided to guard the money and let her younger brother take a wad of it to their mother.

The family called police and the money was returned to the owner on Wednesday.

“After I found the money, I wanted to call the police as soon as possible because I thought the owner must be worried,” the girl told Sohu Video.

Wang received a 10,000-yuan reward this morning, sent by an institution of public character called Tian Tian Positive Energy, for her good deed.
