Sidney Good, Alexis Fairchild both out of hospital following parasailing crash in Panama City

Will continue outpatient therapies

The second of two northern Indiana teenagers badly injured in a Florida parasailing crash is out of the hospital and on the mend.

Seventeen-year-old Sidney Good was released Tuesday from an Indianapolis hospital, but she'll continue outpatient therapies and remain under doctors' care.

Good's family says in a statement that "her recovery has been nothing short of a miracle."

The Roanoke teen and her 17-year-old friend, Alexis Fairchild of Huntington, were hurt in a July 1 parasailing accident that began when a rope tethering them to a boat snapped.

Strong winds slammed the teens into a condominium building, a power line and a parked car at Panama City Beach, Fla.

The Coast Guard has said severe weather and the boat's proximity to shore were major factors in the accident.
