HUNTINGTON, Ind. (AP) -- One of the northern Indiana teenagers badly hurt in a Florida parasailing crash is out of the hospital nearly a month after the accident.
The parents of 17-year-old Alexis Fairchild say she was released Tuesday from an Indianapolis hospital and returned to the family's Huntington home.
Her parents say Fairchild still faces a long recovery, with another surgery in a couple months and physical and speech therapy. Her injuries included a skull fracture.
Fairchild and 17-year-old friend Sidney Good of Roanoke were hurt July 1 after a rope tethering them to a boat snapped and strong winds slammed them into a condominium building, a power line and a parked car at Panama City Beach.
Good was moved to an Indianapolis rehabilitation hospital last week after surgery for facial fractures.
