WOODBURY - A Lindenhurst construction worker has won the lottery for a second time, and his family believes it is a blessing from his deceased wife.

Bruce Magistro won a scratch-off ticket worth $1,000 a week for life. Four years ago, he won a scratch-off ticket worth $1 million.

Matthew Magistro, the lottery winner's son, believes that his mother, Yvonne, helped his father win again. She died two years ago, and Matthew says most of the money from the first win went toward treating his mother's lung cancer.
