Yonkers man hits $5 million Lottery win on Christmas Day


Kevin Buchanan will take home
$3.2 million

YONKERS – When Kevin Buchanan of Yonkers bought a couple of Lottery
tickets on Christmas Day and he scratched off the “Hit $5 Million”
ticket, he first thought he won $500, then he thought it was $5,000, “and
then I saw more zeros and almost fell out of my chair.”

Buchanan was introduced to the world on Wednesday at the store where he
bought the ticket and was presented with the ceremonial giant $5 million

He will actually take home a little over $3.2 million in a lump sum payment
after taxes. As for his plans for the money, “I’m going to
pay some bills and make some investments for the future,” he said.
“I’m just going to live like I always did,” the construction
trades worker said.
