(WHDH) When Max Parenti said he stumbled upon a big wad of cash his mom had to see it to believe it.
"I couldn't believe it," says Heidi Parenti. "He and his dad called me and I said 'prove it' and then they sent a picture of Max with the money fanned out in front of him. It was pretty shocking."
The 8-year-old hit pay dirt in an Exeter New Hampshire park. He was out for a walk with his dad and his dog when he saw something in the grass.
"I just found a bag of money," said Max. "I thought it was just gonna be paper. It was like a bank deposit book. It had Bank of America on it."
