76-year-old man trapped hunting for lottery ticket

AMSTERDAM (AP) - What are the odds?

A 76-year-old man trapped himself in an underground waste paper container in Amsterdam after he clambered in to hunt for a lottery ticket.

Police said in a statement the elderly man managed to open the container and climb in Thursday because he feared he had tossed out a lottery ticket along with other used paper.

Passers-by heard him calling for help and alerted the police who freed him with the help of firefighters.

The bad news? The man didn't find his lottery ticket.
