Man recovering from surgery wins R16m after receiving a 'get well' lottery ticket (See)

In a moment, a man's life altered dramatically as he went from the stage to raking in millions

According to NYPost, Alexander McLeish, a citizen of Massachusetts in the United States, was recovering from cardiac surgery when his childhood friend Larry showed him with a get-well card and three lottery tickets.

Alexander immediately began playing the game with the tickets at his disposal after winning a large sum in a crossword-style game. After scratching the "Your Letters" portion of the game, he received the letters A, W, and M.

He amazingly got the word 'heart' on the bottom row of the crossword game, which earned him the second-place reward in the $5,000,000 100X Cashword quick ticket game.

He couldn't believe what he was seeing.

Alexander checked his crossword game result several times to be sure his eyes weren't misleading him, according to People.

"We double-checked it, triple-checked and quadruple-checked it," McLeish told the Boston Herald. "It was a little bit of disbelief at first but then it settled in and it was like, wow, I can't believe this happened, you know?"

Larry had given Alexander a lottery ticket for his birthday years before that had earned him $1,000. (R15k)
