Bay Area's Luckiest Man Wins the Lottery With $20 Found at SFO

Here’s another reason to watch where you step in San Francisco. Last week, Hubert Tang, a Bay Area bartender, found a $20 bill on the street outside SFO. Rather than pocket the cash, Tang used it to buy two scratch-off lottery tickets at a market in Millbrae.

Now, he’s a million bucks richer.

[jump] According to the Associated Press, Tang hasn't bought a lottery ticket in a decade. “I scratched the ticket outside of the store. I told my friend who I was with that I didn't know if it was real but, 'I think I just won a million dollars,’” Tang said in a statement.

He added that he may start leaving $20 on the street to share his good fortune and give others the chance to maximize their profit.

So keep your eyes down, folks. Money might not grow on trees, but it could come from the ground.
