Good Samaritan Returns Lost Lottery Ticket. The Man Who Bought It Wins Jackpot

A New Jersey man is basking in the good fortune of a $273 million lottery jackpot win that wouldn’t have happened without the kindness of a stranger.

Mike Weirsky, who is unemployed and recently divorced, purchased lottery tickets at a QuickChek supermarket near New Jersey’s border with Pennsylvania.
