Lotto Officials Track Down Woman to Give Her 50 Million

In today's edition of the "Good Stuff," Canadian Lotto officials track down a woman to give her the massive prize she never claimed. CNN's Chris Cuomo reports.

Kathryn Jones purchased the winning ticket last year and lost the paper. But Canadian officials found her!

Mike Hamel, with the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corp., said "We figured out the time, date and location of the purchase. We obtained store security video which clearly shows the identified winner purchasing the winning ticket."

Jones almost didn't open the door for the committee when they came to tell her she won.

"We almost didn't want to let them into the house because we weren't sure who they were. "

We bet she's glad she opened that door.
