Cranston woman wins big after being discharged from the hospital

CRANSTON, R.I. (WLNE)- A Cranston woman won big playing a “Power 5x” instant ticket, just moments after being discharged from the Hospital.

The woman was being driven home from the hospital by her daughter, who wanted to stop and pick some things up at the store.

While at the store, the two split four scratch tickets from the vending machine and scratched them off.

The two scratched their tickets together and the mother won $30,000.

She told the Rhode Island Lottery that she plans to share the money with her children and grandchildren.
