Girls Injured In Parasailing Accident Are Improving

Panama City Beach -

 The two 17-year olds injured in a parasailing accident last week on Panama City Beach are improving.

According to a press release from Bay Medical Center, Alexis Fairchild may be released from the hospital in the next two days while Sidney Good continues to recover from neck surgery performed on Monday.

Sidney has begun eating soft foods and is now able to feed herself.

She told her parents Tuesday that she was bored and is anxious to get up and move around.

Doctors say Sidney may be able to take her first steps tomorrow (Thursday).

She will continue to wear a neck brace as she recovers.

Alexis, meanwhile continues her rehabilitation, but is still suffering from back pain.

The two girls were critically injured July 1st when the parasail they were riding it broke free from its tether.

High winds blew the girls into the side of a condominium and then into the windshield of an SUV.

An account has been set up at PNC Bank to help the families pay for medical expenses.

Payments can be made to the Good and Fairchild Benefit fund or you can donate online at: www.giveforward.com/fundraiser/tpm2/alexis-sidney .
