An Orange County couple are the newest New York Lottery millionaires, thanks to a lucky "quick pick" ticket.
Jon and Deborah Hansen, a Walden couple in their 50s, bought the Cash4Life ticket for $2 in September during a quick trip to the store for milk.
Deborah Hansen realized they won the next day after seeing a post on Facebook that someone local hit the $7 million jackpot.
The pair, who have six children and 11 grandchildren, went back to the store in disbelief to double-check and scan the ticket.

The couple will net a little more than $2.3 million after taxes.
