A Florida man got lucky on Fourth of July to get back his $1,300 he lost at a grocery store parking lot. Chris Woods of Clearwater said he felt “blessed” when a Good Samaritan returned his money.

Woods told local media he had taken the money out from one bank account two weeks ago. He wanted to put the money back in another account but forgot to do so, according to FOX13 Tampa Bay.

Woods believed he kept the cash between two phones in his pocket and when he went to grab one of them in a Publix parking lot, the cash fell out.

“We looked everywhere for it. I went everywhere and assumed it was gone,” Woods told the station, adding he felt lucky when someone found the cash in the parking lot and turned it into police.

The identity of the Good Samaritan who turned the cash in was unclear.

The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office tweeted a photo of a man, later identified as Woods, Tuesday walking through the grocery store.

"Detectives request public’s assistance in identifying a man they say accidentally dropped a large sum of money while shopping at a Publix in Pinellas County. Anyone with information as to the identity of the citizen is asked to contact Corporal David Schafer at (727) 582-6355," the sheriff's office wrote.

Woods told Fox News Tampa Bay: "This morning, my neighbor from across the street came over beating on the door and said, 'Chris, you were on the news. They found your money.'"
