Does anyone know if she is ok? I witnessed the accident and haven’t been able to get the sight and her screams out of my head. She is in my prayers!!
I just found out that this girl is the daughter of my wife’s trainer. After time in the IC unit, and a short time in a regular hospital room, she got home last night. She will need some time to recover from her injuries but it appears she should be OK.

Thank you so much Kevin! That was the worse thing I had ever seen in my life. I’m so glad she is going to be ok. She will continue to be in my prayers.
