(Scroll down for video) A man had an interesting last wish. He wanted that money be thrown from a helicopter so that his community members can enjoy some free cash.
A helicopter hovered above a marina in Lewes, Delaware, and people were stunned when money came flying out of the helicopter.
$10,000 in $50, $20, $10, and $5 bills were thrown from the helicopter as it was carrying out the last wish of the dead person.
“Nobody really knew what was going on until it happened. People started screaming that it was money, and then everyone ran to grab some,” Kara Miele said. “Nobody was fighting each other for it, but everyone was struggling trying to grab everything they could,” she said.
The money was courtesy of the last wishes of a man named Leonard Maull. In his will, Maull wrote that he wants $10,000 to be thrown from a helicopter, one year after he died.
Maull liked to hang out with friends at the Lewes Harbor Marina in Delaware. He was popular and well liked. Now, a year after his death, he has many more friends, and has become the talk of the town.
“This is probably the most exciting thing that happened here,” said Miele.
Lewes Police were told about the event and they sent an officer over to make sure there were no fights about the money.
It was a peaceful event just the way Maull would have like it to be.
