Just after dropping off a passenger on Friday afternoon, Boston cab driver Raymond MacCausland — nick named Buzzy — realised that the passenger he was carrying, forgot to take his backpack while he got down from the cab. In order to look for some identification Raymond opened the bag and to his surprise, he found $187,000 (Rs 1 crore 26 lakh approximately) inside it. While he would have easily got away with the money, Raymond chose to be a Good Samaritan and he handed over the money to Boston Police Headquarters.

The passenger called the police to report that he had left it behind in the cab. The owner of the cash was later able to retrieve his bag and money after providing proof of ownership. It was the money of a homeless man who just inherited the amount after staying at a homeless shelter for six months. In reward, the 72-year-old driver received $100 from the passenger.

 


The Logical Indian appreciates Raymond for doing something which is very rare and for setting an example for others.
