MUENSTER - A man who won EUR 6.6 million in the German lottery this week is going to use the money to help his boss to try to rescue his ailing building outfit, lottery company officials said Friday.

The Westdeutscche Lotterie company of Muenster said the 45-year- old construction foreman said he aimed to buy into the ailing company in Moenchengladbach to pay off its debts and invest in new equipment while rescuing the jobs of his 15 co-workers.

But the man also was going to use some of his new wealth to fulfil a personal wish - travelling to the Athens Olympics next August with his wife and two teenage sons, the lottery said.
