This Canadian man might be the luckiest person in the world. Peter McCathie has managed to survive a lightning strike and has managed to win the lottery in his lifetime. Money can’t buy luck like this.

McCathie, along with co-worker Diana Miller, won a million-dollar lottery after purchasing tickets at the store that McCathie owns, earning him an extra $10,000 from the Atlantic Lottery Corporation. The two collected their prize at the Atlantic Lottery offices yesterday. McCathie, who was struck by lightning at 14-years-old, told CTV about is near death experience recalling he was on a lake’s shore.”I was trying to lock the boat up, it was a very sunny day, there was one big, white cloud in the sky and the lightning bolt came through the trees and hit me,” said McCathie.

McCathie, whose daughter was also struck by lightning in a similar incident and lived to tell the tale, says he didn’t think he would win.

Miller plans on traveling to Cancun, Mexico with the prize money. As for McCathie, he plans on using the prize money to take his wife of 30 years on a second honeymoon. 

In case you were wondering what the odds of all this happening were, mathematics professor at the University of Moncton Sophie Leger concluded the odds were "approximately 1 in 2.6 trillion."
