Boston cab driver who returned money rewarded with cruise

BOSTON (WHDH) - A cab driver in Boston who returned hundreds of thousands of dollars left in his taxi is now getting a big reward of his own.

Buzzy MacCausland found a backpack with $187,000 in his backseat after a passenger left it behind. He turned the bag into the police, who were able to find the owner.

Royal Caribbean heard about MacCausland’s good deed and said they are sending him on a cruise. A spokesperson for the company said it is part of their program where they reward people that do selfless acts.
