A western Minnesota teen is getting high praise after making an unusual catch.
Fourteen-year-old Connor Halsa was fishing at the lake during his family’s summer vacation in the northern part of the state when he managed to reel in a wallet containing two-thousand dollars. The family found a business card inside the wallet and called the number, which eventually led them to Iowa farmer Jim Denney.
Denney lost the wallet in the lake a year earlier and thought he would never see it again. Connor turned down a cash reward, but Denney did talk the teen into accepting dinner and the gift of a personalized cooler. Denney also said he’d be proud to have Connor as a grandson and “would fight for him any day.”
