Skydive Accident Survivor Leaving Hospital

Burning in with a story to tell.

CBS Dallas / Fort Worth

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – A 16-year-old Texas girl who survived a fall of more than 3,000 feet in an Oklahoma skydiving accident last weekend is scheduled to be discharged from an Oklahoma City hospital.

OU Medical Center spokesman Scott Coppenbarger says Makenzie Wethington was expected to be transferred Friday to a Dallas-area rehabilitation facility. She was flown last Saturday to the hospital from Chickasha after the accident.

Wethington hurt her liver and broke her pelvis, lumbar spine in her lower back, a shoulder blade and several ribs. Her trauma surgeon said it was remarkable she survived.

The Joshua, Texas resident plummeted to the ground after her parachute somehow malfunctioned and sent her spiraling downward.

Wethington still has a long recovery ahead, and it could be several weeks before she can bear any weight.

Gluten free


I amaze myself sometimes. This whole dish is gluten free. I would’ve hit dairy free but I couldn’t help but put cream cheese in the potatoes. I also added a cup of almond milk to The potatoes for a creamy texture. And as a side note, organic garlic salt will save you The time of chopping garlic cloves. The chicken was cooked in a pineapple salsa and sauteed in coconut oil. The broccolini was sauteed in lemon juice and coconut oil with salt to taste. 

Oh yes I love to cook.
