Man Who Broke His Hip Wins Mega Millions Lottery With Hospital Pool

He was taken to Jefferson Stratford Hospital for treatment.

After selling a $1.5 billion winning lottery ticket, SC convenience store owner CJ Patel says he plans to share part of the business' $50,000 bonus with his employees. A hospital worker heard the news and invited him to join an employee pool.

Pericles Procopis, 53, bought the winning ticket at a RaceTrac in Orlando, according to a release from the Florida Lottery. She won $1 million.

When the numbers were drawn that night, it turned out Livingston - with a $2 buy-in - and 141 hospital employees had won $1 million, with their ticket just one number off a ideal match. "We're also buying a lottery ticket'". Mickle says she first thought her uncle was confused when he said he won, but staff later confirmed his story.

Livingston needs a hip replacement.

"I didn't believe him when I got here", said Mickle.

"And then the staff came into the room and they were saying congratulations and I was like, "Wow, he really did win".
