INDIANAPOLIS - The father of a northeastern Indiana teenager recovering from a Florida parasailing crash says she's reach another milestone.

Eric Good of Roanoke said today that his 17-year-old daughter, Sidney, was released from Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis and transferred to a rehabilitation hospital.

Sidney Good and 17-year-old Alexis Fairchild of Huntington were hurt July 1 after a rope tethering them to a boat snapped and strong winds slammed them into a condominium building, a power line and a parked car at Panama City Beach. Both now are in rehab centers.

Sidney Good had surgery last week to repair facial fractures and to replace a bone flap from an earlier surgery in Florida,

The Coast Guard has said severe weather and the boat's proximity to shore were major factors in the accident.
