lottery ticket winner
Written by: Sophia
The number of billionaires in the world increased overnight after the winning lottery ticket was sold in South Carolina winning the $1.537 billion Mega Millions jackpot. The winning numbers were 5-28-62-65-70, Mega Ball: 5, matching every single number on the ticket. The South Carolina Education Lottery officials know when and where the ticket is sold, but don’t know who bought it until the ticket is turned in and the public may never know. The biggest Mega Millions jackpot winner prior to this was a $656 million ticket sold in 2012 and was close to breaking the world record of all jackpots. We all hope this will be us someday, so keep trying and never get your hopes up!

Jess Downing never thought she’d be taken out by a wild turkey. The 24 year old woman was knocked off of her 2011 motorcycle on her way to work on October 23. “I saw the thing leap and just fly at me and then I went down. It hurt. I was skidding and I rolled. I was lying there trying to catch my breath for a little bit,” she said. She ended up breaking her arm, however, the turkey was not so lucky. The turkey sadly died, “I got to keep the turkey, so that was good,” Downing said, to new Hampshire Union Leader. Downing plans to make a turkey mount with the tail and wing she was able to recover of the turkey. She is now recovering from the accident and we wish her nothing but the best with her recovery.
