The Canadian Couple Who Won The Lottery 3 Times

The Finks say they'll use that money to support their kids and grandchildren. And while they may be done playing the lottery for themselves, something tells me they might be buying tickets for other people. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
