(Newser) – A New York City toddler with the Midas touch has made her family $1 million richer. Afsheen Ahsan, of Queens, credits her 2-year-old daughter, Anaya Hussain, for picking her New York Poker instant scratch-off ticket. Ahsan says the toddler reached out and touched the ticket on Jan. 30 while they were at the Top Convenience store in Brooklyn. Ahsan apparently took that as a sign and bought the ticket. Good thing: She'll receive $31,152 a year until 2031. What will she do with her windfall? Start a business, and take a vacation—a family one, we assume.
