After Woman Mistakenly Throws Away $5K, Sanitation Workers Come to the Rescue
A New York woman accidentally threw away $5,000 in cash intended for her mortgage payment, but she was reunited with the money thanks to some help from several sanitation workers.
Krishna Nadalall, 45, says his mother, Bayban, of Long Beach, set aside an envelope containing the cash.
When she couldn't find it Tuesday morning, she called her son and hysterically informed him that she mistakenly threw the money away.
Nadalall, a sanitation worker himself, gathered three co-workers to help sift through the loads of trash compiled at the Merrick Transfer Station.
The group was able to recover all but $40 of the money after some of the bills fell out of the envelope along the way.
The grateful mom offered a reward to the men, but they refused.
