GOOD NEWS A Security Guard Here at Fox Hit the Lottery for $1 Million and Retired
Well it's not the Powerball, but how would you like a million bucks?
One of Fox News' very own building security guards was the lucky winner of a New York Lottery Cash4Life game!
Kenneth Cox bought the $1 million winning ticket in this same Manhattan building where he stood watch for 20 years.
Cox, who retired soon after the November win, said he's been playing lotto since 1981 and the most he'd ever won previously was $2,500.
The New York Lottery's website reported:
Cox checked his winning numbers about a week after the drawing.
“I had stopped at the gas station and was checking my November tickets. The ticket wouldn’t scan on the ticket checker so I gave it to the clerk. He printed out the numbers so I could confirm it.”
After verifying his big win, Cox went home and had dinner with his wife, Gloria, without telling her. His calm demeanor didn’t faze his wife when he finally broke the news to her the following morning.
“I was shouting and very excited,” said Gloria Cox. “Kenneth is excited too. He just has an understated way of showing it.”
Congratulations Ken, you deserve it!
And in case you haven't heard, the record $1.6 billion Powerball jackpot was hit last night. There were three winning tickets sold in California, Florida and Tennessee.
