Randon Camera Kindness - Taxi Driver Returns $13,238 Of Lost Photography Gear

Photographer Casey Neistat came back from a long production day, taking a cab back from the airport. About an hour after switching the cab with his car he discovered that he forgot all production gear in the cab.

Here is the intro by Casey:

“a love letter to New York City, totally true story. before you call me an asshole for forgetting my stuff in a cab consider i’d been traveling for 10 days straight always with a producer who was responsible for the gear. this one time i offered to take it. was distracted w my cell phone, the bags were in the trunk and i was dead tired. these things happen in life
