odds of winning powerball.... are one in 292 million. whoever wins the powerball prize will be considered among the luckiest people in the world. but - as gary tuchman reports - what happened to some past winners can be called anything except lucky. to win huge amounts of money in the lottery, you have to be lucky. to keep your life in order after winning that money, you have to be skillful. this is david lee edwards.
to worry about a hotel room, i never have to worry about a menu. that's amazing. edwards and his then soon to be wife shawna won one quarter of a powerball jackpot. they were presented a 41- million dollar check at this ceremony in louisville, kentucky in 2001... and received 27-million after taxes. edwards had served time in prison... and was unemployed... i interviewed them in their luxury hotel suite after they got the check.. (david edwards/lottery winner) "when i went there and played that lottery i was sincere when i asked god to help me cause i was desperate, i was desperate in my soul, just desperation." they had become very rich... very fast. and edwards told me he would turn his life around... give money to charity, his children and already had a plan in mind for themselves. (david edwards/lottery winner) "its an r series bentley rolls royce convertible." (gary tuchman/reporting) "and shawna told me you were going to get her a car too?" (shawna) "well, i'm thinking between three actually. a dodge viper, a
ferrari. i really haven't decided yet". they got the ferrari... and many more cars, and a lear jet, and mansions. in one year, edwards said he spent 12 million dollars. he ultimately lost all his money, filed for divorce from shawna... and died in hospice care two years ago. his story is not unique.. (reporter) "was this bad judgment?" (friend of lottery winner) "it was bad judgment, bad choice." (reporter) "want to say a few words amanda?" (amanda clayton/lottery winner) "..." the woman not commenting was amanda clayton who won one million dollars in the michigan state lottery. she got into legal trouble after continuing to collect welfare benefits. she had said she was entitled to the welfare because she still needed help. one year after she won the money, amanda clayton was found dead in her home from a suspected drug overdose. (nats) "i just want to thank god for letting me pick the right numbers." jack whittaker of west virginia won nearly 315 million dollars in the powerball in 2002... what was then the largest jackpot ever one by one person in u.s. history.
winners, he couldn't believe his good luck. (jack whittaker/lottery winner) "let me see that ticket. i looked at that ticket and sure enough we had the winner and i was very excited." less than a year later, he had over half a million dollars in cash stolen from his car. in the years since, his daughter and granddaughter died untimely deaths... and a few years back, more of his money was stolen from various branches of the bank where he he kept his accounts according to legal complaints against him at the time. when i met david edwards, he and his fianc0 were ready to start a magnificent life. (david edwards/lottery winner) "i'm going to buy shawna a very nice engagement ring which i really couldn't afford before." (gary tuchman/reporting) "do you have a ring right now?" (shawna) "nope. look. " (david edwards/lottery winner) "no jewelry." she got her ring... but both received a lot of despair to go along with it. so... if you win the jackpot.... what should you do first? the official california guide
winners says... get a lawyer right away... but interview at least three qualified candidates first. also... changing your phone number is a good idea. so is hiring an investment planner. you have 180 days to claim the prize. your first payment will be available within six to eight weeks. if you die before receiving full payment... the money goes to your legal beneficiaries - which you can designate through the lottery investments office. after a little more than two years on air - the news channel "al- jazeera america" is shutting down. the decision was announced to staff today. the news channel had been suffering from low ratings since its launch - averaging between 20- thousand and 40- thousand viewers per day. some experts say the decision to shutdown may be linked to falling oil prices - since the al- jazeera media group is owned by the oil-rich government of qatar. a new strain of dog flu has sickened at least two thousand
country... seattle is one of the cities investigating the outbreak. one kennel suspects 80 to 90 dogs were affected in december. it's going through a deep cleaning... and waiting for permission from health officials to reopen. "respiratory viruses are very contagious. we see kennel cough more often, which is much more common, and influenza looks a lot in some cases like kennel cough," health officials say if your dog comes down with a cough - don't take them to the dog park and don't go to doggy daycare. have them checked out by your vet - but call first - so they can set up isolation just in case. now fox5 weather 24/7, with chief meterologist ted pretty we have a series of disturbances moving off of the pacific through the southern nevada area. most of these just throw us some clouds, but now models are picking up on a very slight chance of showers
