A German train passenger on his way to buy a car in the Netherlands, unwittingly dumped 11,000 ($13,530) down the train toilet, Dutch police said on Saturday.

“While using the loo, his 11,000 euros fell out of his clothes and disappeared down the toilet landing on the railway track,” police spokesman Peter van Raaij said.

The man, 38, alerted railway police and the next train stopped so that the ticket collector could retrieve the cash.

He found only 4,000 euros.
