Birmingham Man Finds Winning Ticket in the Trash

A window fitter from Birmingham, England, had to speed home last week when he realized he'd tossed out a lottery ticket worth £20,000.

Gerald Connor, 57, binned his UK National Lottery ticket when his numbers failed to come up in the Saturday night draw. Later on while he was out an about Connor remembered he'd entered his numbers in a promotion called Second Chance Sunday, run by The Sun newspaper.

Beating the trash collectors by just a matter of hours, Connor rushed home, dug deep into the trash, and found the ticket at the bottom of the black bag.
