Forgetful $273M Mega Millions Winner Says Good Samaritan Helped Him Win Big

273 Million Dollar Mega Millions Winner Michael Weirsky Forgot Winning Ticket at New Jersey Convenience Store

"I'm gonna give him something".

Commenting on Weirsky's newfound wealth, Murray said she doubted her ex-husband would reach out and offer any of the winnings, although she remained hopeful that he would do "the right thing", the Post noted.

Weirsky had spent hours searching for the tickets when he got to his home in Alpha, New Jersey, near the Pennsylvania border.

She also told the New York Post that she paid spousal support and continues to make payments. He says when he learned he was the sole victor of the $272 million jackpot, "I just didn't believe it".

"I just didn't believe that it was me, after all these years of playing, I finally had something that said, you're a bigger victor than $2", he said.

She said she won't be trying to get a portion of the lottery winnings.

All the money in the world won't bring her back to her former husband of 15 years.

"I truly wish him well".

China's trade surplus shrinks in Jan.-Feb
On a month-on-month basis, Taiwan's exports fell 25.3 percent and imports were down 41.4 percent in February, the MOF data shows. But he also told reporters at the White House on Friday that he is confident of entering into a trade deal with China.

He said that he had been doing handyman work for a friend to make money before winning the lottery.

Weirsky described himself as a "bum".

Weirsky says his luck has changed in another way too. "In addition to Mr. Weirsky's big win, retailers across New Jersey won big, too", said New Jersey Lottery Acting Executive Director James A. Carey, Jr., in a statement.

"I was paying more attention to my cellphone", he said at a news conference.

The 54-year-old says a good Samaritan found the tickets and gave them to the store to hold until Weirsky returned. The cashier "made me explain what I bet and what the tickets were, and she handed them to me, and I walked out".

Now he plans to buy a pickup truck for himself, a vehicle for his mother and remodel her house. "And when I get the money I'm going to do that".

"I always wanted to know what it would be like to just wake up and decide to go somewhere, go buy something, just do it".
