17-year-old Sidney Good, who was critically injured in a horrific parasailing accident last July, has spoken out for the first time since her accident. The brave teen told the ‘Good Morning America’ crew all about her accident, and gave updates on how she’s doing today.

On July 1, 2013, 17-year-old Sidney Good and her best friend Alexis Fairchild were in Panama City, Florida, prepping for what was supposed to be an unforgettable, fun parasailing experience. Instead, the day became unforgettable for horrific reasons — the two teenagers’ parasail broke free from its boat, and they were hoisted in the air on a windy day. The girls were thrown into the 13th floor of a condominium, and sustained life-altering injuries. On Jan. 22, Sidney went on Good Morning America to update the world on her current condition.

Sidney Good Speaks Out About Parasailing Accident

Sidney told GMA that she suffered broken vertebrae and brain trauma due to her accident, while Alexis had serious back injuries.

Sidney Good Recovers

“The second day [after the accident], my body was preparing itself to die,” Sidney told Good Morning America in her first interview since the horrific accident. “I remember seeing the people on the balcony we hit. I remember them grabbing for me, and after that I blacked out.”

Video footage of the horrific incident, which was taken by onlookers, shows the girls being dragged through the air by strong winds. After hitting the building, the girls were hoisted in the air again, crashed into power lines and eventually landed in a parking lot.

How Sidney Good & Alexis Fairchild Are Coping With The Accident

The girls underwent several operations after the accident, and Alexis was able to leave Bay Medical Center in Panama City in mid-July, one week before Sidney left. The girls have now returned to their hometown of Huntington, Indiana and continue to be treated as outpatients.

Unfortunately, doctors do not expect Sidney to make a full recovery. She completely lost her peripheral vision, and also constantly has double vision.

“I am a strong believer in God,” she said, when asked how she has been able to pull through.

Despite the devastating injuries and ongoing treatment, Sidney has high hopes for her future and still hopes to graduate this year.
