I know we urge players to always check their lottery tickets – preferable twice using different sources. Just to be safe.
But there’s another side to being safe too.
If your lottery ticket has been thrown out and ended up in an underground rubbish container – please don’t put your personal safety ahead of checking your ticket.
An unfortunate 76 year old man in Amsterdam did just that, and found himself trapped in the bin.
Thankfully people heard his cries for help and firefighters were able to free the man unharmed.
Sadly, he still didn’t find his missing ticket.
