POLICE in Austria are trying to discover how more than €110,000 ended up floating down part of the River Danube over the weekend on December 5.
Police investigations haven´t as yet uncovered any related criminal activity, and no one has reported the money to be lost.
One youngster was spotted in the river trying to retrieve some of the €100 and €500 denomination banknotes. The boy is now trying to claim a 5 to 10 per cent share of the money for finding it and taking it to the police.
A Police spokesman in Vienna has said that there is a question as to who actually found the money, was it the boy or the police? Should the money remain unclaimed after a year, then the finder has the right to receive the full amount.
