Tears and Prayers for Teenage Girls in Parasailing Accident

Tears and Prayers for Teenage Girls in Parasailing Accident

Posted: Updated:
Panama City Beach -

Cell phone video captures the nightmare in the skies over Panama City Beach Monday afternoon.   A parasail wing broke loose from the boat pulling it and slammed into a condo balcony railing.
 

People on the ground could hear the screams from the 17 year old girls, Alexis Fairchild and Sidney Good of Indiana.
   Ricky McGee said, "When they impacted the 13th floor up here, it was uh..you know..they grabbed at the rail and they were screaming..and that was probably the worst part right there.  Once they went over the building, it was clear they were unconscious".

 High winds would continue to punish the girls, twirling them out of control..sending them through power lines.  They finally crash landed in this parking lot on some cars.  Pieces of cloth from their parachute, the dented roof on an s-u-v, and broken windshield are all evidence of how hard the girls crashed.  "Just a sickening thud...and it's one of the more horrific things I've ever seen in my life", said McGee.


 Friends are trying to raise money for the girl's families.
  Their goal is 10 thousand dollars.   For more information, go to
