Upstate NY man dies after winning lottery

SIDNEY, NY (WROC) - A Binghamton-area man has died weeks after winning the lottery.

According to WBNG, Donald Savastano, of Sidney, NY, won a million dollars off a Merry Millionaire ticket in early January.

Friends say Savastano was self-employed and didn't have insurance. They say he hadn't been feeling well recently and after winning the money he went to the doctor.

During the visit, he found out he had stage four cancer. He died last Friday, 23 days after winning.

Is this where we’re at?

We can do so much better than this...

6. No, not ironic, just sad. In America you have to win the lottery to visit a doctor.
