|A 16-year-old girl from Texas has survived a fall of more than 3,000ft in a skydiving accident in Oklahoma. |
Makenzie Wethington is in good condition, despite multiple injuries, including to her liver, pelvis lumbar spine in her lower back, shoulder blade and several ribs, trauma surgeon Jeffrey Bender said.

Makenzie is expected to leave the intensive care unit soon, he said.
