$1M Lottery Winner Crash Lands Into Victory

An Indian man has experienced tremendous luck after surviving a fiery plane crash, and then winning the lottery a few moments later! Clearly, the Goddess of Luck was watching down on this winner. Keep reading for the full miraculous story. 

This winner beat immense odds twice. First, he survived a fiery plane crash landing, and the second time around he won $1 million in the lottery. The winner’s name is Mohammad Basheer Abdul Khadar, and he is 62-years-old. He is originally from Dubai. 

Mohammad was on board Emirates Flight 521 when it suddenly burst into flames and had to crash land at Dubai International Airport on the 3rd of August last month. Mohammad’s winning lottery ticket was drawn on a Tuesday in the Dubai Duty-Free Millennium Millionaire at the airport. We guess you could say that he crash landed into victory! 

Mohammad is an Indian national and a grandfather, too. He bought his winning ticket while on his way to vacation with his family. It was his habit to buy a raffle ticket whenever he travelled back home to his native country. 

Mohammad has bought a total of 17 lottery tickets so far. This win couldn’t have come at a better time for him because it happened four months before he was due for retirement in December this year. He mentioned, “I have been working in Dubai for 37 years, and I have always felt like this is my country. I live a simple life, and now that it’s my time to retire, I feel like God gave me a second life when I survived the plane crash and blessed me with this money to follow all this up by doing good deeds.”

He described his escape with other passengers forms the flight as a “miracle”. He said he has only God to thank for his survival. “I value the escape as a more precious gift from God and I knew God saved me for a specific purpose. This is probably it,” he explained. 

The winner has been a Dubai resident since the year 1978. He has plans to return to India after retirement and find a job that will allow him to help people. The winner would like to help children in Kerala who need dire financial and medical help. 

“I am blessed to have finally won with Dubai Duty-Free and can’t wait to share the news with my family. If you were to ask me about my plans, I would, of course, want to help out children who are less fortunate. I don’t want to give it to a charity or build a business. I want to go out and find people who are really poor. I was poor, so I know what it’s like,” he told lottery officials. 

Mohammad has struggled a lot because he had to work a day job for many years with very little pay, and look after his 21-year-old paralysed son. His son became paralysed after an accident a few days after his birth. “I had to spend a lot of money on his treatments and now I can finally pay that money back,” he added. 

He is thankful for his job because it has helped his daughter get married. 

If this isn’t a truly inspirational story, then we’re not sure what is! Congratulations to this lottery winner, he deserved every cent of his win.
