Even as stock markets sank again, one person (or group) made a lot of money this past week: the yet-to-be-identified holder of the single ticket that won the Mega Millions lottery.

New Jersey man Earl Livingston, 87, was walking to buy a ticket for this week's Mega Millions jackpot when he fell and broke his hip, WCAU-TV reports.

The Mega Millions jackpot had reached $1.5 billion when Kelley Brooks' husband texted her, reminding her to get a ticket for that night's drawing. But at Jefferson Stratford Hospital, he was invited to join the hospital staff's lottery pool.

The pool won US$1 million (AUD$1.4m).

Livingston's niece, Bobbie Mickle, told the station that at first she didn't believe him.

Livingston will need a hip replacement, but he says he's thankful. "I thought he was confused, maybe from pain meds". They brought a tray of snacks for the staff to show their appreciation.
