Three NYC residents win $16.7 million in lottery

On August 31, three NYC residents win a total amount of $16.7 million in the lottery. Juan Mendez, a 45-year-old Manhattan warehouse manager, won $4.7 million from a lotto ticket he bought from Milena Pharmacy at Broadway. The second winner is a 24-year-old general contractor, Eric DeBeauchamp. He purchased his Fortune ticket at the Pitstop Pantry on Montauk Highway in East Moriches won $5 million dollars. Yangi Sherpa, a 26-year-old administrative assistant from Queens is the third winner. He believes there is no explanation of luck for her winnings of $7 million from Cash4Life jackpot.

It was not just another Friday for Mendez. He purchased his traditional Friday-after-work tickets at Milena Pharmacy on Broadway in Manhattan. “It is kind of funny because that particular Friday I did not feel like going out to buy our tickets and I am sure glad my wife convinced me to go,” he said. A house with a swimming pool is the first thing on his wish-list. The winner is also planning to pay off all his outstanding debts.

One lucky lunch with his mother has changed the fortune of Eric DeBeauchamp, the other winner. He scratched the $5 Million Fortune ticket at their table and stunned to know the amount of his winnings. “I was out to lunch with mom at a deli and decided to buy a scratch-off ticket to play while we waited. There were a lot of people in the deli. So I tried to remain calm,” he shared. Opted for $3,309,000 as one-time lump sum amount, the winner now wants to buy a new house, open his business, and also enjoy some vacations.

“I was making deliveries for work and decided to buy a lottery ticket. My father played all the games and suggested I play Cash4Life. I do not know the reason, but I am glad because I did!” expressed Sherpa, the third winner. She bought the $7 million Cash4Life jackpot ticket at Pronto Lotto on 74th Street in Elmhurst and scanned it the next day. Interestingly, the administrative assistant checked her winning ticket four or five times before sharing the news with her parents. She preferred to collect a net $4,361,280 after required withholdings and wants to buy a new house for her family.
