From Bus passengers Chris and Darlene Castalano

To the editor:

On Thursday, July 8, our casino bus caught fire as we came off the Luling bridge exit ramp.

Our bus driver moved over to the side of the road, and we were told to get off the bus right away. We want to say “thank you” to our driver who remained calm and helped us to get off the bus quickly and safely.

We also want to say “thank you, thank you, thank you” to the many emergency responders who came so swiftly to help us.

They were from the St. Charles Parish Sheriff's Office, the St. Charles Parish Emergency Medical Center (EMTs) and the fire departments from Luling, Paradis and Hahnville.

You guys and gals were tremendously helpful with water, fans, chairs and canopies, and your smiles and calming and reassuring personalities.

Thank you, thank you, thank you again for all your help and God bless each and every one of you.
