Makenzie Wethington, the girl who was severely injured in a January skydiving accident, returned to school Monday.

As a show of support, her classmates at Joshua High School wore pink shirts with the words “Makenzie Strong” on them.

“Everybody is just so excited to see her, to hear about her story,” junior Emma Strop told WFAA TV. “She looks amazing. You cannot tell that she fell out of the sky.” Story at
