Music student reunited with priceless violin

A music student has been reunited with her priceless violin after she left in on a bus.
Lost violin is found
A music student has been counting his lucky blessings after being reunited with his extremely expensive violin.

Muchen Hsieh had accidently left her $172,000 (approximately £111,000) musical instrument on a bus.

Ms Hsieh, a student at the New England Conservatory in Boston, only remembered her violin after she had been picked up.

The aspiring violinist was distraught when she found out and immediately rang the bus company.

They said that the violin could be nowhere to be found.

"I'm a violin major so I really hope that the person that took it can give it back to me so I can continue my studies because right now, I can't do anything," she told KWY-TV at the time it went missing.

Lucky for her, the bus cleaners found it. They had simply taken it off the bus and put it in one of the bus company's compounds.

Vincenzo Jorio made the instrument in 1895 in Naples, Italy.
