10 Year Anniversary of Tragic Death

It's been ten years since the death of Joshua Babineaux, but his family is still keeping his memory alive through community projects.

Today volunteers gathered at the Babineaux home in Sulphur to put together close to 800 bikes. The bikes are for children throughout Southwest Louisiana.

It's all part of the Joshua Outreach program that launched as a result of the 19-year-old Joshua Babineaux's death in 1999. He was on his way to a christian radio show when he was hit by a train.

His mother, Pam Babineaux, says that her family wanted something great to come out of his death. Volunteers with the Outreach Program have already supplied bikes to different elementary schools in the area and today they handed out close to 600 bikes. They'll finish up deliveries this Monday.
