Woman wins lottery after being turned away by doctors for no insurance


GARFIELD HEIGHTS (WJW) — A bad day turned into one that changed a Garfield Heights’ woman’s life.

Last Tuesday, Cynthia Radosavljevic was trying to get blood work done, but was turned away because she didn’t have insurance, according to the Ohio Lottery.

A few hours later, she got a call from her son, who said her regular lottery stop, Boulevard Convenient, had sold a million dollar ticket.

Radosavljevic grabbed her ticket to check the numbers, and realized she was the winner in the Jan. 21 Mega Millions drawing.

Now, Radosavljevic will receive $710,000 after taxes. She said she plans to share her winnings with her brother, and use the money to get out of debt.

The store that sold her the ticket will also receive a $1,000 selling bonus.
