LeBlanc said he still remembered arriving on the scene to see residents, sheriff's
deputies and firefighters jumping into the cold dark water to do whatever they
could to rescue the children.
"Faith and Patience changed my life forever and I
will never forget," LeBlanc stated in a news release. "Even though
their stay here was very brief, their footprints have left a very big imprint
in all our hearts."
A toxicology report was released two months after the
accident indicating Encalade had prescription drugs in her system. The
Ascension Parish District Attorney's Office is continuing to investigate.

for more signs on the roadway warning drivers. DOTD later announced additional
cautionary signs would be installed on the road.
