    Teenage lottery winner gives nearly all $500,000 to parents

    A teenager who won $500,000 (£401,000) on the lottery, has given nearly all of his winnings to his parents. 
    The 19-year-old, who has asked to remain anonymous, won on a scratch-off instant lottery game. 
    He said he planned to invest $5,000 (£4,000) of his winnings, but the rest will go to his parents. 
    “My parents have done so much for my sister and me," he said in a statement.  
    The teenager from Williamston, Michigan, added: "Helping them takes a big weight off of their shoulders and mine.”
    It was unclear whether his sister will also get a cut of the winnings. 
    The man bought the winning $10 (£8) Golden Wild Time ticket at a Sunoco gas station in Lansing, Michigan and scratched it off in the store. 
    Initially, he thought store clerks were playing a prank on him but then saw their genuine excitement, he said in the statement. 
    His win comes shortly after another 19-year-old also won $500,000 with an scratch-off instant lottery game. 
    Carlos Carranza Casas of Alachua, Florida, was also successful, but it is unclear if his parents received any of his winnings
