For 3 Days, A Baton Rouge Family Was Among The Wealthiest In The World

NOEL KING, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Noel King. For three days, Darren James and his family were among the wealthiest people in the world sort of. The Baton Rouge family found a $50 billion deposit in their bank account. That's 50 billion with a B. They told the bank about the mistake right away, and so they didn't get to keep the money. But Darren did take a screenshot of it. He told BRProud he's never seen so many zeros in his life. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
