Perez immediately returned it to the lost and found office, believing the owner will surely be looking for it.

Airport authorities returned the bundle to its rightful owner of Korean nationality, who was verified through airport CCTV.

In a separate incident the next day, Albert Bautista, a security guard with the Lockheed Security and Watchman agency, transferred a lost bag full of personal belongings into Bay 7 of NAIA’s arrival area while on patrol.

The bag contained a laptop, smartphone and a gold chain, which the original owner later claimed he found in the lost and found office of Terminal 3.

MIAA General Manager Eric Ines has praised both Victor Perez and Albert Bautista for their incredible work ethics.

“Hats off to Messrs. Victor Perez and Albert Bautista for their honesty. Both should be emulated by everyone at NAIA. Let the culture of honesty flourish amid the endless temptations around us,” said MIAA GM Eric Ines.
