An employee of Mai Linh Corporation, a taxi company in Vietnam, has been complimented for returning US$12,500 to a passenger who left his handbag at Da Nang International Airport in the namesake city last Friday. 

A Mai Linh representative told Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper on Monday that the firm awarded a certificate of merit to Nguyen Dang Luyen, one of its employees, for his good deed.

On the evening of April 26, Luyen discovered a leather handbag left unattended on a trolley at the taxi stand in the T1 passenger terminal of the airport. 

Luyen immediately reported his finding to the mobile security team, under the airport’s Aviation Security Center, which then checked the bag and found VND318 million ($12,540) along with some personal papers with the name L.D.T..

The team made a report of the incident and deployed measures to search for the bag owner. 

Shortly thereafter, T., a resident of northern Hung Yen Province, returned to the airport to reclaim his bag of money from the center after providing sufficient evidence to confirm ownership.

T. said he had left it on the trolley during a conversation with other people in the terminal. 

The man expressed his sincere thanks to the Aviation Security Center and Luyen for their good service.

As the numbers of passengers entering and leaving the airport have increased remarkably over the past few days as a result of the Reunification Day (April 30) and International Workers’ Day (May 1) holiday, aviation security forces at the airport have closely coordinated with relevant agencies to strengthen patrol and monitoring to promptly detect and handle any incidents, the center said.

Mai Linh expressed admiration for the noble act of retrieving and returning lost items, such as Luyen's, emphasizing it as a commendable example for all staff to emulate.

The company highlighted Luyen's act as just one among many exemplary deeds performed by their staff in striving to provide the best service to passengers.

These acts range from assisting pregnant women in delivering babies while en route to the hospital, to rescuing victims of traffic accidents, and returning belongings left in cabs or at airports to their rightful owners.
