MILLBRAE, Calif. – Hubert Tang is a very lucky man.

As he was walking along the street outside San Francisco International Airport, Tang found a $20 bill.

While most people would consider that find to be lucky enough, Tang says something compelled him to buy a lottery ticket.

Tang told KPIX that he hadn’t played the lottery in more than 10 years, but decided to use his find to buy two “$1 Million Jackpot! Scratchers.”

“I scratched the ticket outside of the store. I told my friend whom I was with that I didn’t know if it was real, but I think I just won a million dollars,” he said.

Tang says he doesn’t have any plans to quit his job or make any big purchases.

Instead, the money has been put into a savings account.

“Maybe I’ll start leaving $20 bills on the street in random places,” he said.
