LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A Louisville teenager whose feet were cut
off during an amusement park ride last month has returned to a
Tennessee hospital for further surgery, her family said Friday.
Kaitlyn Lasitter, 13, was in stable condition at Vanderbilt
University Medical Center in Nashville, a spokesman said.
Doctors there were able to reattach the girl's right foot after
the June 21 accident but could not save the left foot. She was
released from the hospital two weeks ago.
Her parents, Randall and Monique Lasitter, said in a statement
released by the hospital that they "still aren't sure of the fate
of our daughter's right leg." They said Kaitlyn would be in the
hospital until early next week.
The family sued Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom in Jefferson County
Circuit Court earlier this month. They are asking a judge to order
the park not to destroy the Superman Tower of Power cable that
investigators believe tore off the girl's feet.
