READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
On Tuesday, Piers Morgan used his "Only in America" segment to tell the tale of a saint, cruising the streets of Sin City.
"What would you do if you found a huge amount of money in the back of a taxi?" asked Morgan rhetorically. "We're talking Vegas jackpot money here. Would you call the cops or would you keep it to yourself?"
Introducing his viewers to cab driverAdam Woldemarim, Morgan noted that the Ethiopian immigrant was recently dealt such a hand:
"A few weeks back, while cleaning out his taxi, he [Woldemarim] found a computer case in the back. Inside was a cool $221,000 dollars in cash," Morgan explained.
In a town that makes its' living on easy money, Woldermarin made a seemingly very hard decision and returned the winnings to their rightful owner, earning a $2000 tip for his trouble.
"Piers Morgan Tonight" reached out to the automobile operator, who speaks too little English to offer comment. However, a close friend described Woldemarim as "a humble, modest, poor but happy man. He apparently never complains, never argues."
After hitting backseat Blackjack, but leaving his chips uncashed, the driver didn't even feel as though he'd done anything all that remarkable.
"He just thought it was the right thing to do," said Morgan.
"Only in America," concluded the host, might a man from a foreign land, journey to one of the United States' most impure cities, only to offer up an entirely wholesome value system:
"It was ... a pretty special thing to do, a pretty unusual thing to do," said Morgan. "And for that I think that Adam Woldermarin from Ethiopia is a hero."
