After buying his "Mega Millions" lottery tickets, 48-year-old Bill Isles was struck by lightning. He still lost the lottery.

Isles bought the tickets on Thursday, then remarked to his buddy (quote) "I've got a better chance of getting struck by lightning than winning the lottery." No truer words have ever been spoken.

That night, Isles worked as a volunteer spotter for the National Weather Service. He says the last thing he remembers is that he "saw a flash, heard a boom" and found himself sprawled on the ground.

Isle Said(quote) "It kind of scrambled my brain and gave me an irregular heartbeat".
