Teagan Marti just before she plunges from the Terminal Velocity ride.
Teagan Marti has spent every one of the past 80 days in a hospital room. She barely survived the 100-foot fall from a ride know as "Terminal Velocity," which essentially drops a rider from high in the air into a safety net. But something went horribly wrong that July day. The net never lifted into place, and Teagan was dropped face-first to the ground below.
The Herald reports Teagan cannot walk, and only recently began speaking again. She gets around in an electric wheelchair, and has months, if not years of physical therapy ahead of her. Her muscle tone has improved, and with hard work, she has a chance at walking again.
Despite all that, Teagan says she's happy to be going home.
"I miss my pets," she told the paper.
