It was not worth anything, he just wanted to double check it.

    Been there, done that.  I just stuck my head and arms in the bin though, 40 bucks was just not enough to scale the walls.

    LOL

      This Story has at least a Happy ending! so we can celebrate with a fellow lottery player across the Atlantic for the biggest lottery win ever, LIFE.

      The garbage lorries could have been there and picked up everything including the elder, and that would not have been pretty at all.

      Some very mean Dutch teenagers, like the football(soccer) players also from Amsterdam, who kicked their linesman to death at a game in Almere, could have gotten there ahead of the Good Samaritans and may not be as kindly.

      The weather in Amsterdam last week was mostly in the upper 40's to mid fifties and nothing near freezing either at night.

      Anyway he is still in the game, so his lottery story is not yet over.

        Glad senior man is okay.  I, too, wonder how much the ticket was worth!

        I doubt it was worth more than a buck two eighty.

          I would bet he was worried that it MIGHT be worth something.

            A happy ending would have been saving the lottery ticket. I dont see anything happy about saving the player without his ticket. The whole reason for everything was to save the ticket...
