Mr Livingston had to be hospitalised at Jefferson Stafford Hospital and missed out on buying an entry.
Earl Livingston, 87, left home to buy a ticket for the historic $1.6 billion jackpot but on his way to the store, he slipped and fell.
That's where his physician and nurse invited him to join their office lottery pool.
"We all got a text saying we got a million-dollar ticket", Kraemer said. In other local lotto news, a winning $1 million ticket was sold in Tampa, and a 70-year-old Hudson woman claimed $2 million off a Powerball ticket last week.
Ms Mickle told NBC 10 she didn't believe her uncle when he told her he'd won from his hospital bed.
A $1 million lottery ticket purchased in Lindenwold, New Jersey is going to a group of hospital employees in South Jersey - and one patient.
"We were overwhelmed and humbled that they did this", niece Bobbie Mickle said. "And I was like, 'Wow, he really did win'".
Unfortunately, the break means he'll need a hip replacement. "I appreciate very much and God bless you and have a happy, happy long life!"
