Skiatook Girl, Aunt Back Home After OSU Homecoming Parade Crash
SKIATOOK, Oklahoma - A Skiatook second-grader and her aunt have been released from the hospital after their injuries in the OSU Homecoming Parade. Madison Atwell and her aunt Kayleigh are safe, sound and smiling - back home.
The girls and Madison's grandmother, Debbie, all suffered broken bones Saturday in the Homecoming Parade crash. Madison has Pistol Pete "tattooed" on her cheeks. Her dad says the temporary tattoos have been there since the crash, and she won't let anyone wash them off.
She also had visits from Oklahoma Thunder stars like Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook while at the hospital in OKC.
Madison was expecting to go to her first Cowboys game but was in the crowd when police say suspect Adacia Chambers drove around barricades and into spectators.
Madison's father said: "My family is going to bow out gracefully and let people focus on what's important, like other families still in critical condition. My family would like to say that we will be praying for them."
