Sleepy student leaves $222,500 violin on US bus

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Police are asking for the American public's help in recovering a rare violin worth US$172,000 (S$222,500) that was left on board a Boston to Philadelphia bus by a groggy music student from Taiwan. Philadelphia police said the instrument was left in an overhead bin on a Megabus late Tuesday. Ms Muchen Hsieh told KYW-TV she noticed she didn't have the violin after getting picked up by the family hosting her visit to the Philadelphia area. She called the bus company but was told the instrument hadn't been found. Ms Hsieh said a Taiwanese culture foundation lent her the violin as she studies at the New England Conservatory in Boston. It was made in 1835 by Vincenzo Jorio in Naples.
