A hapless couple got a lucky break this week when the large pile of cash they accidentally left on a tram was returned to them.

On a visit to their daughter in Basel the couple left a bag containing 144,000 francs ($145,000) and their identity documents on a tram in the city, reported news agency ATS.

Noticing their error only after the tram had left the stop, they reported the incident to police at Basel train station.

Luckily, the tram driver discovered the bag at the terminal and turned it in to police.
