Surfer buys lotto ticket after being bitten by shark

From Sunday Morning, 9:50 am on 23 February 2020

Auckland surfer Nick Minogue was told to buy a lotto ticket after he was bitten by a three-metre-long Great White shark while surfing at Pauanui Beach yesterday. He didn't win the big prize -- which has now jackpotted to around $40 million -- last night, but he certainly has a decent story to tell next time he's out on the water.
