HAWYARD, Calif. - A California airport worker is set for life after winning $20 million from a scratch-off lottery ticket.
The California Lottery said Durwin Hickman works at a Bay Area airport and bought a $30 Set For Life! ticket on his lunch break.
He got to the second-to-last spot on the ticket where the word "LIFE" appeared, meaning that he had won the top prize. He sent a picture of the ticket to his wife to double-check the winning ticket.
