Man Struck By Lightning Hours After Buying Mega Millions Lottery Tickets!
Published on April 2, 2012
As the adage goes: you have a better chance of getting struck by lightning than winning the Mega Millions jackpot.
For Bill Isles, a 48-year-old Wichita, Kan. man, that saying became painfully true on Thursday, according to KCTV-5 News. After buying three tickets for Friday's Mega Millions lottery jackpot, Reuters reports, Isles was walking to his car when he said to a friend that he had "a better chance of getting struck by lightning" than winning the $640 million. Just hours later, Isles, who KCTV-5 News reports in the video above is a storm spotter with the National Weather Service and was operating a ham radio at the time, was struck by lightning outside his home.
