They say there's always a light at the end of the tunnel, and this could not have proved more true for a family from Alberta in the US.
Bill Pendergast and his family has spent the last year struggling to rebuild their family home after it was destroyed in a wildfire, but now the family will finally be able to complete the rebuilding project after scooping a $1 million lotto win.
He bought three lotto tickets from a local shop on the way to visit his ill father, and forgot about the tickets until his excited aunt woke him up the following day to let him know that someone had won a jackpot. He then checked his tickets and couldn't believe what he saw: he was $1 million richer.
Speaking with local news outlets he said that, "I called my wife, Carrie, in Fort McMurray and she booked a flight immediately."
He plans on paying for the final renovations to his home, buying his wife a special gift and finally owning that Ford Mustang he's wanted for his whole life.
