PARKLAND, Fla. (AP) - The 13-year-old Florida girl who fell about 100-feet to the ground from an amusement park ride in Milwaukee is finally going home after nearly three months of hospital care.
Teagan Marti (TEE'-gehn MAHR'-tee) told the Miami Herald she misses her pets and looks forward to returning to her Parkland home on Monday. Marti still can't walk. She's using a motorized wheelchair.
Her lawyer said he had reached a settlement with Extreme World in Wisconsin Dells but he couldn't release any details. The court still has to approve it.
The Wisconsin Department of Commerce has said the operator at the top of the Terminal Velocity did not follow protocol when Marti fell July 30. The report says Marti was dropped before the cage in which she was riding reached the top and before a net was in proper position.
