Miracle Girl

Three teens went hilltopping and crashed through a fence outside Springfield. The only one buckled up in this case faced the worst injury of all–and somehow survived. But as Ashley Pratt reported, it took a medical miracle to save a life.

Back Story: HTV waited over two months after the accident to approach Melinda Bennett about doing the story, making sure she was completely out of danger and recovered from the crash.
The Focus Statement: “It took a miracle to save Melinda”
Trivia: The story also ran on KY3 as part of HTV’s weekly “Our Turn” report for the station. The “Our Turn” segment ran for ten years, from 1995-2005.
