A former factory worker from Selangor, who survived an accident last year, won the Supreme Toto 6/58 jackpot on Sunday, 12 January
The 29-year-old won RM23 million in the Sports Toto jackpot, reported New Straits Times.
The lucky winner was quoted by Sports Toto saying that "it must have been a blessing from God" considering that he survived a major car accident and has now won the jackpot.
The unnamed winner had come to collect the winnings with his siblings today, 16 January.
Last year, the former factory worker's car was involved in an accident when a lorry crashed into his vehicle from behind
Following the incident, the man was comatose for two months, reported The Borneo Post.
"After that, I was unemployed until I found a job at a factory recently but I had to quit the job because of my health condition. I believe it is God that has helped me survive all these ordeals," the man said, adding that he would start helping those who are in need with his newfound wealth.

The 29-year-old also said that he wants to use a portion of his winnings to settle his debts and buy a house, adding that, "My mother can also stop working and enjoy life."
