Insurance Company Denies Winning Slap Shot Payout
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep with congratulations and regrets for Nate Smith. The 11-year-old made an incredible hockey shot. He slapped a puck through a tiny hole from 89 feet away. The shot during a charity game in Minnesota was for a $50,000 prize. But the insurance company Odds On Promotions declined to pay. Nate Smith was standing in for his twin brother Nick, whose winning raffle ticket made him the one who should've held the hockey stick.
