Motorcyclist hit by $600,000

A Taiwanese motorcyclist was hit by a fortune after a $600,000 kidnap ransom dropped on his head.

Lu Fang-nan, 57, was knocked off his motorbike after a relative of a kidnap victim dropped the money from a highway overpass, local media reports said.

The stunned man re-mounted his bike and sought medical help for a swollen leg - and the kidnappers fled with the cash.

The person who dropped the money was following orders from kidnappers who had seized an electronics merchant.

Mr Lu said he did not realise he had been hit by the falling fortune until television news reported the businessman's release and the delivery site of the ransom payment.

"Such a way to pay ransom is dangerous. It could get people killed," the unlucky cyclist told the United Daily News.

The incident paid off for the kidnapping victim, who was released unharmed. Police say they are hunting several suspects.
