He certainly qualifies as a Good Samaritan.

According to the Clarksville (Tenn.) Leaf Chronicle, a Tennessee man found a bag continuing nearly $13,000 in cash on top of a garbage can outside a convenience store over the weekend turned it in to police, who returned the money to its owner.

The owner of the money was hospitalized after suffering a reaction to medication, according to the Leaf Chronicle report.
