OSAWATOMIE, Kan. (AP) -- An eastern Kansas man plans to pay off his house, buy a swing set and make some investments with the $1 million he won in the latest Powerball drawing.

The Kansas Lottery says 43-year-old Nelson Worley, of Osawatomie, matched the first five numbers but not the Powerball number in Saturday night's drawing. The jackpot was $141 million, but Worley says he's not complaining about winning just $1 million.

Worley runs a stucco contracting business in Osawatomie. He and his wife have five children and one grandchild between them.

It's the second recent stroke of luck for Worley, who nearly died about 18 months ago when he went into cardiac arrest at a go-cart track in Olathe (oh-LAY'-thuh). A good Samaritan whose name he never learned provided CPR until first responders arrived.
