TOPEKA, Kansas - Nelson Worley, 43, of Osawatomie matched the first five numbers in Powerball and won $1 million.
Worley was clinically dead a year and a half ago after going into cardiac arrest. He was lucky enough to be brought back to life by a Good Samaritan.
Saturday night Worley experienced another kind of luck when he matched the numbers on his ticket.
"First and foremost, I'm lucky to be alive," Worley said. "Winning a million dollars? I never expected that."
The winning numbers in the July 20 Powerball drawing were 14-25-27-38-58 Powerball 6. Had Worley matched the Powerball number in addition to the other five numbers he matched, he would have won a $141 million jackpot.
Worley owns his own stucco contracting business, New LLC, in Osawatomie. He and his wife have five children and one grandchild between them. The Worleys plan to use their prize money to pay off their house, buy a swing set and make some investments.
Worley purchased his $1 million Powerball ticket at Casey's General Store 1977, located at 400 Sixth Street in Osawatomie.
