A Chinese woman named Hao Bin set fire to £20,000 cash that was hidden in the family cooking stove recently in China.
Her husband had given her the money for safe keeping the night before, but the next morning, Mrs Bin wanted to boil water for tea forgot about the hidden money in the oven.
According to her husband, “We had not been paid ourselves yet for our work, but I needed to pay the workers so we borrowed the money from friends and family, and we wanted somewhere to keep it safe for a day before paying it out. It was a hard blow, and my wife is devastated. But I have forgiven her, and we will survive”.
“The money, which was meant for her husband’s staff salary, was hidden in the wood-burning stove by the woman herself but forgot she’d put it there when she went there to make a pot of tea.”
