CORNWALL – A Cornwall man has struck it rich after winning just over $69,000 on a lottery ticket.
Pierre Deschambault won the second prize in the Sept. 15 Lotto 649 draw.
“It was a wow moment! I was in total shock,” he told lottery officials when he picked up his prize in Toronto.
The 70-year-old grandfather plans to use some of the $69,111.70 he won to fix up his home and enjoy life.
The ticket was bought at Jean Coutu on Ninth Street in Cornwall.
