Eerie, New York

Yahoo reports, Eerie 9-1-1 Lottery Draws Interest

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Officials say it was just a coincidence, but many people found it chilling nonetheless: On the anniversary of Sept. 11, the winning numbers in the New York lottery were 9-1-1.
Lottery officials said Thursday that 5,631 people had selected the tragic numbers. They won $500 each. A similar coincidence occurred Nov. 12 when the numbers 5-8-7 came up in the New Jersey lottery the day American Airlines Flight 587 crashed in New York City.
