NEW CITY, N.Y. (AP) — A Pennsylvania man recovering from surgery has won $7 million off a lottery ticket tucked into his get-well card.

Joseph Amorese (am-ohr-EES’), of Easton, got the ticket from his father, who lives in the hamlet of Congers in Rockland County, New York.

Amorese had just undergone surgery. A few scratches later on the “$7 million Golden Ticket,” and he was feeling great.

He sent a photo of the ticket to his dad, who agreed that it was a winner.

The 46-year-old Verizon employee then called his wife, a social worker. When he said, “Honey, I think we won $7 million,” he was met by a long, stunned silence.

Lottery officials presented Amorese with a ceremonial check Wednesday.

The ticket was purchased at a dollar store in New City, New York.
