Good Samaritan surprised by praise for returning cash

GOOD Samaritan Amrik Singh Sidhu has proven good deeds do still exist.

The Gladstone taxi driver, who is employed by Blue and White Taxis, has handed over a considerable amount of money after a patron left it in the back seat of his vehicle.

Without a second thought, Mr Singh Sidhu handed the money over to the police.

"I didn't have to think about it. I was surprised to receive so much praise," he said.

"The money didn't belong to me. My parents taught me to be honest."

The 24-year-old driver has been overwhelmed by the response, and hopes everyone, if in a similar situation, would do the same.

Blue and White Taxis' Allan Rowe said Mr Singh Sidhu's actions were admirable.
