The Philadelphia Orchestra Won’t Have to Replace Aidan Milligan’s Trombone After All

There’s a happier happy ending to Aidan Milligan’s story. The 9-year-old Drexel Hill boy made news last week when the Philadelphia Orchestra volunteered to replace his trombone, which was taken when he placed it outside his house—so he wouldn’t forget to take it to school with him the next morning. That was a gesture appreciated by the family of Milligan, who has Down syndrome, but they won’t need the replacement trombone after all: Police in Haverford say they’ve recovered the missing instrument. “I’m just overjoyed, I’m delighted,” said Helen Milligan, Aidan’s mom. Police aren’t saying if anyone was arrested in the case, nor how the trombone was found [NBC 10 Philadelphia]
