The man in yellow is thought to be the holder of the second winning ticket in Wednesday's Powerball jackpot drawing. The ticket was purchased in Arizona, but the man claimed it at a Maryland gas station.

Footage from a Maryland gas station security camera allegedly captures the moment a man discovered he had a winning ticket in Wednesday's $587 million Powerball jackpot, NBC News reports.

In the surveillance video, a man dressed in what appears to be a yellow construction suit, goes to the counter with some lottery tickets. He checks his numbers with the cashier, Kamran Afgan, and realizes he has matched the jackpot numbers.

Afgan told NBC News that the man, who has not yet been identified, told him he was from Maryland and a member of the military. Powerball has not confirmed the winner yet.

Two tickets matched the winning numbers for the historic Powerball jackpot Wednesday. A Missouri couple, Mark and Cindy Hill, came forward to claim their half of the prize, according to KSDK.

The other winning ticket was sold in Arizona. According to Afgan, the unidentified man's winning ticket was from Arizona, but the man left the store so quickly that he did not have a chance to scan it.

"Arizona's winner has until May 27 to claim the fortune," WKRC reports.
