A Bay Area woman, who miraculously awoke from a two-month-long coma two years ago, has another reason for feeling blessed.

Emily Leach is California's newest lottery millionaire. The 30-year-old won the big prize over the weekend, when she bought $40 in tickets at a Mountain View liquor store.

"I started bawling, I was crying so bad, and I called my mom and she thought I had been in a car accident. I said mom please get over here right now, I don't know what to do. She said sign the back of the ticket, so I signed the ticket and I locked myself in my car until my mom and my grandma came up," said Leach.

Leach is no stranger to winning the lottery-- she won $5,000 right before Christmas. Leach says she'll use the money to pay off her medical bills and take her family on a trip.
