Both parasailing accident victims back in Indianapolis

Parents expect Good to enter rehab soon

INDIANAPOLIS - The second victim of a parasailing accident in Florida has returned back to Indiana.

Sidney Good was released from a Florida hospital Sunday morning and was flown to Indianapolis where she was admitted to a local hospital.

Good’s parents said she was not ready for a rehab facility yet, but she did stand up and walk Saturday for the first time since the accident.

Her parents released a statement Wednesday about her progress.

"Sidney underwent surgery early this morning at IU Health Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis to repair fractures in her frontal bone and around her right eye. Surgeons also repaired sinus and nose fractures as well as replaced the bone flap from an earlier surgery in Florida. Doctors report that the surgeries went well and will be placing her back in ICU for close observation tonight. Depending on how well she does, Sidney could be on her way to the rehab hospital in Indianapolis in three to four days," her father Eric Good said in the statement.

Her parents said memories of the incident were starting to come back.

Good and her friend, Alexis Fairchild, were parasailing July 1 when the tow rope broke and the girls hit a building before crashing into a parking lot.

Fairchild was transferred to the Rehabilitation Hospital of Indiana on July 11.

The Good family released a note last Sunday and said they plan to return to Florida.

“We hope to return sometime when both of the girls are well and see all of our new friends again. And of course, enjoy a beach vacation,” the not said.
