Robert G. Swofford, a postal worker from Seminole County, Florida, won $60M in a lotto drawing. He took more than a month to come forward and claim his prize. He kept his mouth shut and divorced his wife, from whom he had seperated 3 years earlier. The couple later reached private settlement for sharing the funds; the ex-wife recieved $5.25 million, and an extra $1M for their 11 year old son, in return for agreeing not to seek more of her exhusbands winnings. Swofford was later shot several times, by accident, by two police deputies investigating a crime. He survived, and had later had to make an additional monetary settlement to his ex-wife's sister, with whom he had earlier fathered a child.
