    Salem's Aiden Wright, 7, found $8,000 on a playground Saturday.
    The world’s most honest person might be a 7-year-old kid.

    A Massachusetts boy returned $8,000 in cash he found on a Salem playground just moments after he struck it rich on the slide during a Saturday play date with his uncle.

    “I ran up the slide, and at the top I looked in the corner and there was this black check book, and I opened it up and I saw $8,000 in it, and I brought it back down to my uncle,” Aiden told WBZ.

    With his uncle Danny Wright, Aiden took the fortune to police who were able to tack down its owner, contractor Elias Santos.

    Santos was playing with his kids in the park on payday when his earnings slipped out of his pocket. He left the playground without even knowing it was missing.

    “When the police called me I was so surprised," said Santos, who only knew he was out $8,000 after the cops asked if he was missing anything.

    Santos gave Aiden a $100 reward and thanked the kid for his honesty.

    If I remember correctly, the story said he was a contractor, and he had just come from a job. He stopped at the park to play with his kids, and dropped the checkbook.

    Sounds like he was trying to keep the IRS from getting their cut.

    10-15% is an appropriate finders fee. cheap fucker is lucky he got the money back at all. show some gratitude, $100 is a slap in the face
