GA Woman Claims 1 of 2 Winning Lottery Tickets

ATLANTA (AP) -- A Georgia woman has come forward to collect half of the second largest lottery jackpot in U.S. history.

Ira Curry, of Stone Mountain, says she'll take the lump sum payout of $120 million after taxes.

Curry bought one of the two winning tickets for the $636 million Mega Millions jackpot. The other ticket was sold in San Jose, Calif.

Curry, her husband and other family members came to the lottery headquarters in Atlanta to claim the prize, surprising officials who thought the winner may take some time to get their affairs in order.

Curry lives in a two-story home with a two-car garage and a basketball goal in the driveway. Other than that, not much is yet known because she has not wanted to speak publicly.
