Man drops $11,200 from plane near Jakarta

Now this is what you call "throwing money around."

AN INDONESIAN businessman sparked a scramble for cash when he dropped 100 million rupiah ($11,200) in banknotes from an aircraft today to promote a book he has written.

A 13-year-old girl lost consciousness running after the notes and had to be rushed to a nearby hospital, the Detikcom online news service said.

Tung Desem Waringin, who is promoting his second business motivation book, got the aircraft to fly four times over a soccer stadium in Serang city, some 60km west of Jakarta.
