Two Indiana teens remain in critical condition after a parasailing accident in Florida.

The girls, Sidney Good and Alexis Fairchild, crashed into a condo building in Panama City while they were on vacation.

Their home community of Roanoke, which is near Fort Wayne, held a prayer circle Wednesday night.

“Pray for them, they need it. I know they’re strong girls. I know they’ll pull through it and I know they’re going to be okay and they’re going to come and be happy go lucky like usual,” said Brooke Rethlake, friend.

Over the past 15 years, 33 people have been injured and six have died in parasailing accidents in Florida.

Currently, there’s not much government oversight and a bill to add more regulation died in the Florida State Senate recently.
