Australian Bill Morgan was declared dead for 14 minutes and lived unscathed. To celebrate his survival, he bought a scratch card & won a $27k car
The news asked him to re-enact the scratch card moment so he bought another card & won a $250k jackpot.
“Australian truck driver Bill Morgan’s extraordinary string of luck began, strangely enough, when he was crushed in a truck accident and suffered a fatal heart attack.
Clinically dead for more than 14 minutes, Morgan was revived. After 12 days in a coma — during which time his family was advised to unplug life support — he awoke with all of his facilities intact.
A year after his heart stopped, he proposed to his girlfriend, Lisa Wells. She said yes.
And then two weeks ago, he bought a scratch-off lottery ticket and won a car worth $17,000. A Melbourne TV station was so impressed with his run of luck, it decided to do a story on Morgan and re-enact his scratching of the ticket.
As the cameras rolled, Wells won a jackpot worth $170,000 (250,000 Australia dollars). He plans to use the money to buy a house for his bride.
After such extraordinary luck, Morgan is giving up the scratch cards. He says his only wish now is for continuing health and happiness, a sentiment Wells shares.
“”I just hope he hasn’t used all his good luck up,”” she said.”
