Over-stressed guardian throws money into air

A man who spent 10 stress-filled hours on a night train guarding 3,000 yuan (US$363) finally broke down and threw the notes in the air at Nanjing Railway Station, reports Shanghai Morning Post.

The man finally calmed down at [a] hospital --and kind-hearted passengers at the station returned his money.
