Woman who let Powerball winner cut in line not upset

The person who may have made it possible for a Florida woman to win a $590 million Powerball jackpot has come forward.

Mindy Crandell says she's the one who gave up her spot in line for 84-year old Gloria Mackenzie. Crandell says she's happy Mackenzie won and says that her 10-year-old daughter Mallory -- who was with her in that line -- learned a valuable lesson.

Crandell said: "She was like, 'sometimes it's better to be patient than rich,' and I was like, 'that's right.' So I knew then no matter what that we were teaching our daughter the right thing."

There's no word if Mackenzie will offer Crandell a cut of the winnings. The lucky grandmother has decided to take a lump sum, cash payout, which is worth around $370 million before taxes.
