'World's luckiest man': Dubai air crash survivor wins one million dollars on lottery six days later

A survivor of the Dubai plane crash has been called the "world's luckiest man" after he won $1 million on a lottery six days later.

Mohammad Basheer Abdul Khada was a passenger when the Emirates  aeroplane crashed and burst into flames on the runway of Dubai’s airport last Wednesday.
The 62-year-old grandfather walked away unscathed from the crash landing with the 300 other people on board, moments before the plane exploded in a fireball.

Mr Khada, from India, then had another stroke of luck when his winning  lottery ticket turned him into a millionaire.

The lucky ticket number 0845 was drawn in the Dubai Duty Free Millennium Millionaire lottery at Concourse A at Dubai International Airport.

Mr Khadar, who works in a Dubai car dealership, bought the ticket in the airport on his way to Thiruvananthapuram in the south Indian state of Kerala.

On his return trip, he was seated on the plane which crash landed and caught fire.

He collected his prize on Tuesday, which came just four months before he was due to retire.
