Nguyen Thi Minh Thu forgot to bring her red bag, containing an Ipad, a camera, and VND400 million ($19,000) in cash with her after a taxi driver dropped her off at her relative’s house in Tan Binh district on June 19th.
After realizing what she had done, she contacted the Saigon Air switchboard and was able to retrieve her belongings.
“I flew to Ho Chi Minh City to seek medical care. But I was so tired upon my arrival at the airport so I left the bag behind in the cab,” Thu told VnExpress newswire.
“If I had lost the assets, my pain could have got worse,” she added.
Graceful for Quy’s kindness, Thu tried to give him money but he refused.
“What I did was not a big deal at all. In my situation, other drivers do the same thing,” Quy said.
Previously, on May 30, a poor driver in the central province of Quang Tri returned unclaimed property and cash in a bag, the total value of which was as high as VND1 billion (US$48,000), to its owner.
