Good samaritan picks up bank notes from road to return them to owner

A heartwarming video has emerged from China of a man picking up money from a road after it dropped from the back of a scooter.

The CCTV footage, filmed in Chongqing last Saturday, captures the moment the scooter driver drives away without realising he lost his bank notes.

Then, a man can be seen walking to the middle of the road to pick up the cash, followed by other pedestrians and drivers.

According to local reports, the scooter driver named Liao Xingbin was carrying over the equivalent of £1800.

A man named Xia Mingdong reportedly, collected all the money and stopped other people from taking it away, before he called police and handed it over.
