Californian Lotto Winner Begins his New Life in Tears

Winning the $5 million jackpot on a California Lotto Scratchers ticket proved to such an emotional experience for Salvador Cardenas he broke down in tears.

When Cardenas first walked into the California Lottery's Van Nuys district office, last Thursday, he appeared to be reasonably calm for a man who walking around with a $5 million ticket it his pocket.  But when lottery officials asked him how the money would help him he could keep his composure no longer and, with tears in his eyes, he explained he was going to use it to help his father.

"Cardenas didn’t need to say much more for us to know how important this big win was for him and his family," lottery officials stated.
