Twice Lucky: Dubai Crash-landing Survivor Wins $1 Million

Twice Lucky: Dubai Crash-landing Survivor Wins $1 Million

Wednesday, 10 August 2016 12:56 PM

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — A man who survived the crash-landing of an Emirates airplane is now twice lucky after winning $1 million in an airport duty-free sweepstakes.

Mohamed Basheer, a 62-year-old from India who works at an auto dealership's body shop in Dubai, is taking it all in his stride, however. He tells The Associated Press that he'll continue working at the body shop as a fleet operations coordinator until he feels ready to retire.

Basheer found out he won the sweepstakes Tuesday. Days earlier, on Aug. 3, he was among the 300 people who fled a burning Emirates airline Boeing 777 that crash-landed at Dubai International Airport.

Basheer says he'll use the money to support his family and start a charity in his hometown of Pallickal in India's Kerala state
