BROOKLYN HEIGHTS, Ohio — An Ohio woman won $1 million in the Mega Millions Lottery only hours after she was turned away from having blood work because she did not have insurance.
Cynthia Radosavljevic won $1 million in the January 21 Mega Millions drawing after matching all five numbers and no mega ball, according to Ohio Lottery officials.
Radosavljevic told officials her day started with being turned away from having blood work done because she had no insurance.
A few hours later, her son called and told her a $1 million dollar ticket was purchased at her regular lottery stop, Boulevard Convenient in Garfield Heights, Ohio.
Cynthia grabbed her ticket to check the numbers and realized she was the winner.
After taxes, Radosavljevic will take home $710,000. She told lottery officials she plans to share her winnings with her brother and get out of debt.
