After a man accidentally dropped a lottery ticket worth $1 million at a gas station in Salina, Kansas, an employee ensured that the winning ticket made it back to the right hands.
The ticket was actually purchased in Lincoln, Kansas, but while stopped at the Salina gas station, the winner's brother held the ticket in his hand, then dropped it. After spotting it when the brothers were gone, employees picked up the ticket and scanned it, discovering it was worth $1 million. It wasn't signed, and any one of the employees could have claimed it as their own, but they waited to see if the men would return, and when they came back a few hours later, the ticket was turned over to the rightful owner.
The winner asked to stay anonymous, and the Kansas Lottery has not revealed the name of the Salina gas station where the ticket was lost. "It's just nice to know there are still good Samaritans around," Lincoln resident Shelly Thomas told KWCH. "Not just pure greed."
