“I thought it was just play money and immediately took the envelope and turned it over to airport operations officer Raymund Salazar who examined the contents. It turned out that the money was genuine,” according to Laxamana.

Laxamana is working at Clark international Airport for over 13years as a janitress and part of her job to report to airport authorities or operation staffs when things are left unattended.

Airport authorities had reviewed the CCTV footage and saw one passenger dropping the white envelope while about to board the Cebu Pacific flight bound to Singapore. The money is currently deposited to the lost and found area which can be claim by the rightful owner anytime.

“We’re proud of what Ms. Laxamana did. Her honesty is even more glaring since what she found was an untraceable envelope. Her good deed is truly worthy of emulation by all airport employees,” according to Jaime Melo, president of Clark Airport.
