Man finds a $10,000 surprise inside designer bag on subway
NEW YORK (AP) - A Chanel purse left in a Manhattan subway station held a $10,000 surprise for the man who found it.

Luckily, a woman had reported the missing money to police before going to Russia. It'll await her when she's back in January
