MAN LEAPS FROM BRIDGE TO RETREIVE $20 BILL

While some people might throw a dollar away, others would risk their
life for a $20 bill.  "How far would you go for 20 bucks? Mark
Giorgio jumped off a 50-foot bridge to retrieve a wayward 20.

Giorgio was counting his money while walking across a bridge over
the Manatee River in Florida. A 20-dollar bill blew out of his hand
and over the rail. He followed. Giorgio plunged into the water 50-feet
below, then had to swim 100 yards, but he did get his soggy 20.

He was fished from the water by a passing Florida fish-and-game
officer. Giorgio tells the Sarasota Herald-Tribune "hell, yeah" it
was worth it. He says 20 bucks is a lot of money when you're broke."
