“I took a photo of it and sent it to my son. I told him I am going to buy a new wagon for my groceries,” he said.

“My son told me I won $100,000! I almost fell down I was so surprised.”

Moretti said he plans to save some of that cash so he has what he needs, but he really wants to travel and go back to Italy.
