Couple wins lottery twice in 1 weekend

'I almost had a heart attack. I had to have an aspirin'

(GMA.YAHOO) — An Arkansas couple struck gold twice after winning $1 million and $50,000 jackpots, both of them during this past weekend.

Stephen, 54, and Terri Weaver, 55, of Stuttgart, Ark., left on Friday for a weekend trip to a cabin near Greers Ferry Lake, over 100 miles away. On Saturday evening, they stopped at T-Ricks convenience store in the nearby city of Pangburn. Stephen bought five $1 Million Riches instant scratch-off tickets while his wife bought four.

“We pick up a couple tickets on the weekend when we go to our cabin on the river,” said Terri, an office manager with a water company. “It’s a weekly thing. We just pick up a few here and a few there.”

Once they brought the tickets to the cabin, they realized one of Stephen’s $20 tickets won the $1 million jackpot.

“I almost had a heart attack,” said Stephen, who owns a plumbing company. “I had to have an aspirin.”
