On Wednesday morning, one Shanghai man had just taken out thousands of yuan in cash from a bank, only to have a gust of wind come and take it away from him, scattering the dozens of banknotes out onto the street.
But fortunately, as the man watched in horror with his savings floating away in the wind, more than 20 passersby sprang to action, stepping into the busy intersection to help him retrieve his cash.
Watch video of the incident below:
A similar incident occurred in Anhui province in 2015 when a woman accidentally dropped a few thousand RMB while crossing the street. Surveillance video shows several onlookers rushing over to help her track down her lost cash, which was being scattered by the wind and passing cars.
