SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. (AP) - A grocery store worker near Atlanta made more money on her lunch break than many people earn in a lifetime.

Angelia Salas, who works at a Publix store in Sandy Springs, purchased her lucky ticket while on her break at the store.

It turned out to be a lucrative lunch break: She won the top prize playing the instant game $550,000 Grand Money.

The 50-year-old Smyrna woman has big plans for the winnings. Salas said she plans to put an end to some bills - her car note, her father's car note and her father's mortgage.
