Friends pray for teens hurt in parasailing crash

HUNTINGTON (AP) — Friends of two teenagers badly hurt in a Florida parasailing accident have gathered in their northeastern Indiana hometown to pray for their recovery.

Organizers say groups of 20 or more joined in prayer services held Tuesday afternoon and evening at a Huntington church for 17-year-olds Sidney Good of Roanoake and Alexis Fairchild of Huntington. They've been hospitalized in critical condition after strong winds caught the detached parasail in Panama City Beach on Monday and they crashed in to a building and parked vehicle.

Huntington North High School student Natalie Mills tells The Herald-Press (http://bit.ly/13l1D0o ) that Good and Fairchild need prayers and she believes her happy-go-lucky friends will pull through.

Life Church youth pastor Hillary Vought says the prayer groups began late Monday after the girls' classmates learned about the accident.
