Good samaritans are making headlines this week, beginning with this guy who pulled over to assist a woman in a motorized wheelchair, calling it his "random act of Canadianness." But that kindness soon extended south of the border, where an Indiana woman who stumbled upon a pile of cash in a parking lot didn't hesitate before doing the right thing.
Not only was Shannon Baker nine months' pregnant at the time, but the 27-year-old and her husband were both out of work when she found $4,000 in a parking lot.
It would have been so easy for her to pocket the huge sum of cash, and she would have been within her rights to do so. Instead, Baker went to the police, who then contacted the local newspaper. According to an article in the Huffington Post, a woman in her 70s responded to the ad, providing a receipt for the cashed check.
