Family finds ?28,000 in new home – then returns it
搬新家搬出28000英镑 一家人拾金不昧

A man in Utah discovered $45,000 (?28,000) stuffed into tins and boxes in the attic of the new home he had just bought – and gave the money back to the previous owner's six children.
一个住在犹他州的男子在新买的房子的阁楼上发现了塞在罐子和盒子里的4万5千美元,并把钱还给了前房主的六个子女。

A man in Utah discovered $45,000 (?28,000) stuffed into tins and boxes in the attic of the new home he had just bought ? and gave the money back to the previous owner's six children.

Josh Ferrin was exploring the house he had just bought when he made the discovery.
当时Josh Ferrin正在检查这所自己刚刚买到手的房子,结果就发现了这些。

"I freaked out, locked it my car, and called my wife to tell her she wouldn't believe what I had found," said Mr Ferrin, who works as an artist for the Deseret News in Salt Lake City.
“我吃惊极了,我把钱锁在车里,然后给老婆打了电话,她也不能相信我的发现。”Ferrin先生说。他是盐湖城《犹他新闻报》的一位美编。

Along with his wife and children, they spread out thousands of notes on a table, separating the bundles one by one. They stopped counting at $40,000.
跟他的太太还有孩子一起,Ferrin一家把发现的几千张钞票放在桌子上一一清点。数到4万美元的时候,他们决定不数了。

Despite being tempted to keep the money to help him pay for mounting bills and broken down car, Mr Ferrin sought out the children of the home's previous owner, who had died, and gave them the money.
虽然也想过把钱留下来支付堆积如山的账单和修好罢工的汽车,但Ferrin还是找到了已经去世的前房主的孩子,并把钱交还给了他们。

"I'm not perfect, and I wish I could say there was never any doubt in my mind. We knew we had to give it back, but it doesn't mean I didn't think about our car in need of repairs, how we would love to adopt a child and aren't able to do that right now, or fix up our outdated house that we just bought," he said. "But the money wasn't ours to keep and I don't believe you get a chance very often to do something radically honest, to do something ridiculously awesome for someone else and that is a lesson I hope to teach to my children."
“我不是完人,说没有过私吞的念头是假的。我们都知道应该把钱还回去,但这并不意味着我没想过我们的车正需要维修,我们也想要收养一个孩子,可是现在实现不了;还有就是要整修一下这套我们刚刚买下的旧房子。”他说,“但这钱毕竟不是我们的,这样拾金不昧,为别人做点大好事的机会也不是每天都能遇上的。而且这是我希望能教给我孩子们的一课。”
