The second time around was the lucky one for a region Gulf War veteran and father of four who today won the Hoosier Lottery Lucky Millionaire drawing, walking away with a million dollar prize. Chris Ziegler, of Valparaiso, says he was also a finalist in the previous Lucky Millionaire drawing last September, but says when he heard his name today he was in shock, as well as Hoosier Lottery employees at the odds of being picked twice for the drawing.
Ziegler, who was working as an EMT before winning, but says he was injured while serving in the Marines, and that injury has hampered his ability to perform those duties, so after winning today he says he notified his employers he was resigning, who were happy for him.
Ziegler says he plans to spend the weekend celebrating. The drawing took place today at the Indianapolis St. Patrick's Day Parade and Festival.
