    Great Video & Article on Monorail Driver

    There is some awesome video on the Orlando Sentinel website, taken by a family a week before the tragedy. It shows them, Grandparents and their grandson, in the Cabin with Austin. The video shows Austin really loved his job and was a great CM!

    The Grandmother sent the video to the Sentinel along with a great e-mail.

    CAUTION: This will likely make you cry as I did!
