Lost & found, thanks to GPS

NEW YORK: A musician has been reunited with his 18th-century violin after he mistakenly left it in a New York City cab.

City taxi officials say a GPS device in the cab led to the quick return of the instrument to Korean violinist Hanh-Bin on Monday. The violin is valued at around $600,000.

The musician had taken a cab from Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts to his Chinatown apartment in lower Manhattan early Monday morning. He inadvertently left behind the violin and a credit card.
