The taxi driver Juan Amado, father of eight, found the bag and quickly reported it to the agency's manager. When asked, Amando said "I did it for God and for my children,"
"When I suffered a stroke eight years ago, they said I would be in a wheelchair. I asked God to let me work to feed my children and He did. Thats why I'm going to return something with all that He gave me? I didn't do it for me, or for the person who lost it, I did it for God "he said.
"I did, in addition, to give an example to my children and although several colleagues tell me it is wrong, you should have told me in store for me, I insist that it is not so," he added.
The taxi driver told the media that when he returned the bad to the owner, the owner "was sitting on a sidewalk, heartbroken" for having lost that significant amount of money.
