A grandfather who always told his friends that he would end up winning the lottery has been proven right after bagging a $10million jackpot.
Theodore Duncan, 52, picked up the huge prize after buying a scratch-off ticket in Oxford, North Carolina, on Monday, while on the way to dump trash at a landfill site.
Duncan, who works as a machine mechanic, was initially stunned by his good luck, but also thinks it was written in the stars.
Collecting his prize Thursday, he explained: I always told people that one day Id hit the lottery.Todays that day.
Recalling the moment he realized hed won the enormous windfall, Duncan, who buys three or four tickets every week, said: I said, “I won, I won, I won,”.
I panicked, I just looked down at it.”
I was so shocked I couldnt drive.
I had to get my brother to come get me.
