[Source:theage.com.au] Dumped mattress lands cash in trash in Israel June 10, 2009 - 11:14PM A stash of cash landed in the trash when a woman in Israel dumped her mother's mattress not knowing it was stuffed with the equivalent of about one million US dollars. Israeli media reported that the 40-year-old woman showed up at a garbage dump in a panic on Tuesday, looking for the valuable bedding. She had bought a new mattress for her mother and, wanting the gift to be a surprise, threw away the old one. She then found out the decades-old mattress contained her mother's life savings. Workers are helping her search the garbage, but have found no sign of the cash so far.
