87-Year-Old Man Breaks Hip, Wins Lottery Pool

Mega Millions

An 87-year-old man is thousands of dollars richer after breaking his hip.  The New Jersey man fell and broke his hip while on his way to purchase a Mega Millions ticket earlier this week.  He was taken to Stratford Hospital where staffers took notice of his story, and allowed him to join the hospital lottery pool.  The pool ended up winning one-million-dollars with each of the 141 people taking home around 44-hundred dollars.
