British hero who saved policeman's life wins £1 million.

A British man who rescued a policeman when he had a heart attack on a bus has become a new EuroMillions UK Millionaire.

A water quality engineer, Anthony Canty, maintains the water quality for the London care homes and hospitals. In April this year, as he was returning home from Witham, a policeman who sat next to him, collapsed. Canty had to act quickly. He pressed the bell for the bus to stop and gave the officer CPR as he had had a first aid training at work. The following month, Anthony Canty celebrated £1 million (US$1.2 million) lottery win with his family and two children. The UK's EuroMillions add-on raffle drawing that made Canty a millionaire was held on the 5th of May, 2020.
