Police in Austria are investigating how bank notes worth tens of thousands of euros ended up in the River Dan-ube. The notes were found floating down the river in Vienna on Saturday, leading one passer-by to jump in and sal-vage the money.
A police spokesman told the BBC that the recovered money was worth some €100,000 (£72,000; $108,000). Police said there were no crimes were recorded in the area and that it was not clear where the money originated.
They were first alerted when bystanders spotted a boy in the river on Saturday. Fearing he was attempting suicide, they called police, only to find he was trying to retrieve the money.
Anyone who finds money and hands it to police in Austria is entitled to keep between 5% and 10% of the total. But if the owner is not found within a year, the whole sum will be handed to the boy.
