One customer was taken to the hospital with minor injuries he suffered while pushing his wife out of danger. Several others were checked out as a precaution.

The restaurant’s owner is thankful it wasn’t worse.

“Usually like around 7, 8 [p.m.] we have like 70, 80 people here, and it would’ve been a big tragic,” Carlos Castigilia said. “I mean, I’m sure it would’ve been devastating.”
