Time Grows Short for Bronx Powerball Winner

The holder of a winning (US) Powerball ticket bought in the Bronx has just days left to claim their $1 million prize.

The ticket was bought last February at the C&C Discount store on 167th St. near the Grand Concourse. The winner has yet to come forward and after Sunday it will be too late.

"If the winner is out there, speak up soon," said Yolanda Vega (New York State Lottery). "Maybe someone forgot they purchased a ticket or they simply discounted it because it wasn't a jackpot winner," Vega continued. "Either way, $1 million dollars is life-changing money and we want to help find the winner before it's too late."
