CHICKASHA, OK – Makenzie Wethington, 16, is recovering after a near-fatal skydiving accident in Oklahoma.
The Fort Worth teen went skydiving for the first time with her dad. A life-long dream, that quickly turned into a nightmare.
As she was falling somehow her parachute malfunctioned, causing her to crash to the ground.
She was airlifted to OU Medical Center and remains in ICU. Some of Makenzie’s injuries include: her vertebrae broken in half, along with her pelvic bone. Broken ribs, and teeth. And internal bleeding.
Doctors expect her to survive.
