The astonishing tale of Bill Morgan, a 37 year old truck driver from Australia, has resurfaced on social networks, earning him the title of the luckiest man alive. His story of winning the lottery twice following a miraculous recovery from clinical death has captivated audiences worldwide.

In 1998, Bill Morgan was involved in a severe car accident that left him in a coma, with a clinical death diagnosis due to a heart attack. However, against all odds and to the amazement of his doctors, he regained consciousness two weeks later, without any medical explanation for his recovery.

Feeling that his near-death experience might have turned the tides of fortune in his favour, Morgan decided to test his luck by purchasing a lottery ticket. This decision paid off handsomely as he won a car worth AU$30,000 (700,00 baht). His story quickly caught the attention of local newspapers and television.

Fast forward to 2020, while re-enacting his lottery win for a television show, Bill Morgan went to a store, picked a scratch card, and in an unbelievable turn of events, won the grand prize again, this time a staggering AU$250,000 (5.8 million baht). The camera captured his shock as he showed the ticket to the show’s crew, exclaiming, “I just won AU$250,000. I am not joking.”

Struggling to believe his luck, Morgan humorously remarked that he felt like he might have a heart attack again. He immediately called his fiancée to share the incredible news, reported Sanook.

In an interview with Daily Mail Australia in 2020, Morgan confessed that he continues to buy lottery tickets every day. Despite some ongoing health issues, he expressed profound gratitude for his good fortune. Before his lottery wins, Morgan lived in a caravan park on the outskirts of Melbourne. His winnings enabled him to purchase a house in Melbourne and invest the remaining money.

“Every day after I wake up, I put on my shoes and go for a walk. Even when I’m not well, I walk down the streets, smell the roses, watch the sunrise, and think about how lucky I am… I also have a beautiful car.”

However, he admitted that he might have to retire early due to heart disease and arthritis.
