Family finds and returns 40k

An American family found $40,000 in their new house - and gave the money back to its rightful owner.

Josh Ferrin bought the home in Salt Lake City and was shocked to find the huge amount of cash hidden in the garage.

Although he said he could have used the money in many ways he decided to alert previous owners to teach his children good morals.

He said: "I'm not perfect, and I wish I could say there was never any doubt in my mind.

"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."
