article imageLottery player wins twice by mistake

By RobotGod     Aug 1, 2007 in World
Talk about a lucky guy. This guy mistakenly bought two tickets for the same lottery and doubled his share of the jackpot to nearly 1 million pounds. That is a happy accident..
Yahoo reports that Derek Ladner, 57, from Cornwall, and his wife Dawn, 60, won with their usual numbers in the mid-week draw, sharing the 2.4 million pounds jackpot with only four others.
One week later he discovered a second ticket in his wallet and realized that he accidentally had bought another ticket. They of course have already given their notice at work and are trying to figure out what to do with the money. Lucky dogs."It's beginning to sink in," Ladner told a news conference. "We are going on holiday first...and then think about what we are going to do for the rest of our lives."Hopefully they live happily ever after and share some with me. Great story. Lady luck was definitely with them.
