A Canadian man has beaten extreme odds -- and now he's a lottery winner.
Peter McCathie survived being struck by lightning when he was 14 to go on to win a $1 million lottery prize decades later.
“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,” McCathie told CTV.
According to ABC News, the 1 in 2.6 trillion calculation comes from combining the lottery odds, lightning odds and the odds that McCathie’s daughter was struck by lightning a few years ago.
McCathie will split the prize with a co-worker. He plans to use his winnings to take his wife on a second honeymoon.
