FAIRWAY, KS (KCTV) -
A 43-year-old Osawatomie man has now been named Kansas' newest millionaire.
Nelson Worley knows a lot about luck. He was clinically dead almost two years after going into cardiac arrest and was lucky enough to be brought back to life by a good Samaritan.
He experienced another kind of luck Saturday when he matched the first five numbers in the Powerball.
"First and foremost, I'm lucky to be alive," Worley said. "Winning a million dollars? I never expected that."
His wife of 12 years said it is his good karma coming back to him.
"He is a great husband, father and provider, and he deserves this," Shannon Worley said.
The winning numbers were 14-25-27-38-58 Powerball 6. Had he matched the Powerball number in addition to the other five numbers he matched, he would have won the $141 million jackpot.
"I could complain, but why?" Nelson Worley joked. "I'm quite happy."
Worley said he used to always let the computer pick his numbers for him, but about a month ago he started to pick his own numbers, too.
His winning $4 ticket had two plays, one with numbers Worley picked himself and the other with numbers picked by the computer.
It was the Quick Pick play that won him the $1 million.
Worley owns his own stucco contracting business in Osawatomie. He and his wife have five children and one grandchild between them.
He plans to use the prize money to pay off his house, buy a swing set and make some investments.
Worley purchased his $1 million ticket a Casey's General Store in Osawatomie.
