A train delay was a boon for an Orangeburg woman, who spent the wait time buying a $1 million winner in the Carolina Millionaires Club game.
The South Carolina Education Lottery reported that the woman, whose did not want her name disclosed, was waiting for a train near the Quick Store and decided to go in. She bought the instant ticket game, then went outside to scratch it. Suddenly, she was running back in. The clerk confirmed the she was a winner.
She told lottery officials, "If it wasnt for that train, I would have headed straight home."
The woman did not have immediate plans for the new wealth.
"Im trying not to let this overwhelm me," she said.
