Thailand Introduces Women Only Train Carriages Following Rape Incident



A very honest train cleaner found €3,000 in a tourist's pair of trousers on the Bangkok to Chiang Mai overnight express - and handed it in.

French tourist Mangin Agnes lost her money while travelling with her husband. The train had departed Bangkok on Wednesday evening and reached Chiang Mai on Thursday morning.

Mangin and her husband retuned to Chiang Mai station on Friday morning and proved the money was theirs before it was returned.

According to the Bangkok Post, the couple expressed their gratitude to the State Railway of Thailand and donated 2,000 baht (approx £40) to the state enterprise.

Meanwhile, back in September 2013, a homeless man who turned in a lost backpack containing $42,000 (around £26,000) was rewarded for his honesty after tens of thousands in donations poured in online.

Glen James, who has been homeless since 2005, was honoured by Boston Police Commissioner Edward Davis with a special citation for handing in the rucksack that contained thousands in cash and travellers cheques.

And one man, Ethan Whittington, from Virginia, was so moved by the man's good deed, that he set up an online fundraising account via gofundme.com to help buy the man a house.
