Demolition Begins On President Casino's Barge

The storm-tossed President Casino is being turned into scrap metal. A Texas based company has begun tearing apart the giant barge.

Hurricane Katrina washed the casino ashore. It landed on a hotel next to the Mississippi Coast Coliseum.

D.H. Griffin is the company handling the demolition. They say the structure will be gone in the next 30 days.
