Dominican Construction Worker Loses Job, Wins Lottery

El Diario La Prensa, Posted: Feb 02, 2009

NEW YORK- Joselito Dilon, a recently unemployed Dominican construction worker, is one of eight winners in Thursday's $35 million lottery, reports El Diario La Prensa. Dilon first bought an instant lottery ticket, won five dollars, and immediately bought the second, to win him a piece of the grand prize. Dilon thanked God that he will be earning $2,000 per week for the rest of his life, but while his total earnings will be taxed by 40%, he said that buying the ticket was still "worth it."

Dilon was employed for 16 years at a New York construction company, but lost his job when his company shut down in early January.
