November 14, 2012

John Turner returned to his hometown in New Jersey to help clean up the mess caused by Hurricane Sandy. Karma proved to exist after winning $100,000 on a New Jersey lottery ticket.

Turner currently resides in Chicago running a water removal business. He decided to take his work to New Jersey, helping some homeowners free of charge knowing they could not afford the services.

The 38 year-old could not believe he actually won off of a random scratch off lottery ticket he purchased after a long day of work.

"I showed the card to my buddies, and we all couldn't believe it," Turner said. "I was overjoyed and had tears in my eyes. I'm still just trying to take it all in."

Turner even plans to donate some of the winnings to his local church and families in need.
