HUNTINGTON, Ind. - Two teenagers badly hurt in a Florida parasailing crash last summer say they're grateful they've recovered enough to graduate from their northeastern Indiana high school.
Alexis Fairchild and Sidney Good joined their Huntington North High School classmates in receiving diplomas during the Friday night ceremony.
Fairchild tells WANE-TV (http://bit.ly/1kVVzBR ) she hopes her graduation means a new start from being known as "the parasailing girl" from the crash last July at Panama City Beach, Florida.
Video showed strong winds slamming the teens into a condominium building before they also hit a power line and a parked SUV.
Good says she wants to move on from so many people knowing her name because of the crash.
Fairchild continues getting therapy on her injured back, while Good still has vision problems.
