Teen Girls Improving, Still in Critical Condition After Fla. Parasailing Accident

Earlier this week, we saw an extremely frightening video that surfaced out of Panama City Beach, Florida, where two teen girls from Indiana suffered critical injuries when their parasail detached from its boat.

Witnesses watched in horror as the girls struck a hotel balcony and power lines on their way to landing in a condominium parking lot. Another victim dropped into the Gulf of Mexico when the parasail line broke and was rescued.

The families of Sidney Good and Alexis Fairchild, both 17, released a statement yesterday asking for prayers as the girls remain in critical condition. They did, however, say that there had been some progress from the day before.

Here's more from FoxNews.com.

The families of Sidney Good and Alexis Fairchild, both 17, expressed optimism in a statement, saying the girls were able to make small gestures to communicate, but face a challenging road ahead.

The two teens, both from Roanoke, Ind., suffered head trauma and severe lacerations, The News Herald reported. Fairchild has severe back injuries and Good sustained neck trauma, the statement said.

"Alexis (Fairchild) had surgery on her spine and has also been responsive including a small wave at her parents when she returned from surgery," the statement said. "Our families are incredibly touched by all the support we've received from friends at home and from many people we haven't met before who are praying for our girls."
