(KMOV.com) -- A New York man found a lottery ticket worth $1 million while cleaning up storm debris from Hurricane Sandy. 

The man found the ticket last October, but couldn't prove to lottery officials that he was the rightful owner. So by New York Lottery Rules he had to wait a year to claim his prize.

He took a cash payout of $779,000.
