(Grants Pass, OR) An unemployed dad stopped to pick the kids up some corn dogs and turned into a millionaire.

Riley Gunn from Grants Pass, Oregon and his wife were laid off from their jobs last year.

The couple was struggling and raising three children.

When Gunn stopped at the store he purchased a Mega-Millions ticket.

Days later he found the ticket and it was a winner, worth one-million dollars.

They donated money to their church, bought some I-pads for the kids, two new jeeps for themselves and put a down payment on their first house.
