How Much Longer?

A young, fit woman and her small, waif of a child were out on a late night jogging trip a few nights ago. It was an intensely foggy evening, one of those ones where you can hardly see ten feet in front of you. She was pushing the boy around in a pram and, due to the lack of visibility, the pair happened to fall into an open well. The woman escaped with her life after clawing up the stone sides. The child, on the other hand, trapped within the confines of the stroller, sunk and perished from the cold water within a few short minutes. Later, while looking for the boy’s body at the bottom of the well, a diver found a winning lottery ticket someone had discarded without scratching off. When asked, he said it was a lucky day.
