Musician reunites with £300K violin forgotten in NY cab through GPS!

By Super Admin

London, August 19 (ANI): A musician has GPS technology to thank for a reunion with his 300,000-pound violin that he forgot in a New York cab.

Hahn-Bin left the 18th century instrument in a yellow taxi while heading back home from a concert.

The absent-minded 22-year-old later realised his loss after reaching his Chinatown apartment and called the city's taxi authorities and the police.

"Losing an instrument is a greatest fear, even more than making a mistake on stage," the Telegraph quoted Hahn-Bin as saying.

The taxi dispatcher located the cab with ease since all yellow taxis are fitted with GPS trackers.

Overnight records showed that the musician had been dropped off by Dalbir Singh, before the driver finished his shift and headed home to New Jersey, where the violin was safely waiting. (ANI)
