A Canadian couple from Fort McMurray, Alberta, who lost everything in a wildfire, can now get a fresh start in life -- after winning $1 million in the Atlantic Lottery.
Bill Pendergast was visiting his sick father when he stopped by a convenience store to grab his dad a soda. While there, he bought a $3 lottery ticket. The next morning, he found out he was a millionaire.
The couple said they will use the money to finish rebuilding their home. They also said they want to take their children on a Caribbean vacation and set up college funds for their grandkids.
But 50-year-old Bill had one thing he wanted to splurge on for himself … "I have always wanted a Mustang," he said, "and I will finally have one. I'm 100 percent sure of that."
