Little boy finds $8,000 at the park

Posted: Updated:

SALEM, MA (WKOW) -- A 7-year-old boy in Massachusetts is teaching everyone a very valuable lesson.

Over the weekend, Aidan Wright found $8,000 at a park. Until then, he says he's never even seen that much money.

"I ran up the slide and there was the black check book," Aidan said. "I opened it up and found $8,000 in it and brought it to my uncle."

Aidan and his uncle immediately turned it over to the police.

The money ended up belonging to a contractor who had just been paid. He was so grateful, he gave Aidan a little reward. Aidan says it was easy to make the right choice because he believes in treating others the way you want to be treated.
