NEW YORK, March 14 (UPI) -- A New York woman said she would not have purchased a winning scratch-off lottery card worth $1 million if it hadn't been for her 2-year-old daughter.

Afsheen Ahsan, 34, who claimed her winnings Tuesday, said she decided to buy the New York Poker ticket from the Top Convenience store in Brooklyn Jan. 30 when her daughter, Anaya Hussain, 2, touched the ticket, the New York Daily News reported Wednesday.

"If she didn't touch it, I wouldn't have taken it. She's lucky," Ahsan said.

Ahsan, a Pakistani immigrant, said she and her boyfriend, Sayed Hussain, already have some plans for the winnings.

"I'm going on vacation, but I have no idea where. I want to start a business too, a grocery store," she said.
