Ga. woman cleans purse, finds winning ticket

A Georgia woman's decision to clean out her purse paid off in a big way when she found an old lottery ticket worth $189,302. Fifty-five-year-old Rhonda Williams of Fairburn says she found the winning Fantasy 5 ticket in the bottom of her purse after cleaning it out over the weekend.

WSB-TV reports that the ticket is from a Jan. 17 drawing. Williams picked all of the winning numbers: 18, 25, 28, 29, 35.

Williams says she plans to pay off bills and may take a cruise.
