His own house may have burned down last Winter…
But this year has been a whole lot luckier for New York City firefighter Stephen Kirwan.
On Tuesday Stephen was announced as the big $122 Million Powerball winner from 22nd January.
“I sat at the kitchen table on Sunday morning and checked my numbers in the paper as usual,” he said. “I checked those numbers three times before I finally turned to my wife and said ‘I think I won.’”
Kirwan picked his numbers at random. “They don’t mean anything,” he said.
His winning ticket contained 5 lines of numbers, which cost him $5 total.
The winning Powerball numbers were 30-31-34-45-51 with a Powerball of 23.
