Couple wins lottery twice in one day

An Arkansas couple won the lottery twice in one day.

The couple, who set out for a day of fishing, won the lottery twice and came home with two lottery tickets worth a combined $1,050,000, the Associated Press is reporting.

According to the Associated Press, the Arkansas Lottery Commission says Stephen and Terri Weaver were on a fishing trip when they stopped to buy the first ticket at T-Ricks convenience store in Pangburn, about 60 miles northeast of Little Rock. They stopped at the same store on their way home and bought another ticket.

That first ticket turned out to be a $1 million winner. And the second one netted the couple another $50,000.

The lottery commission says the Weavers claimed their cash Monday and that they plan to pay bills and invest in their retirement.
