I have been on every news site and station to see if there was anything new, I can't find anything. Our family was only a few feet down from them, we left the parade and prayed for the family. Please post news if anyone knows any details. Hope and pray the little girl will be okay.

All the info I have gathered so far- seems that she was going for candy and accidentally knocked- float ran over her head and chest. An update from someone on Facebook was that she's pretty banged up but is up and talking- and the CT and MRI look good. I will post anything else I hear.

So much of medicine is "wait and see" be patient, even the doctors don't know and can only read tests to predict treatments needed for best results. If you believe...it's in God's hands...and we can only accept the results. Love them for they are only loaned to you for awhile, and we cannot question why.

My advice; control yourself not to reproduce. You don't have children, or cancelling the parade would be your last thoughts on this situation. Understanding a parents life, and how quick things happen, is something you know nothing about.
You'll get your candy next year, don't worry......idiot!

I have to agree with good grief, parades are dangerous. They had to quit letting the shriners in Erwin from bringing there go carts because they have been known to show up drunk and there have been some serious injuries.
Any time you have horses and trucks and parents who let their kids run wild your going to have accidents.
I hope the little girl is OK and I hope the town has enough insurance to cover it or the parade might go the way of the carnival.

This is a terrible thing that happened, but to go along with good grief, they have barriers and caution tape up for a reason. Parents need to keep their kids where they're supposed to be.

I know that when we had a float in the parade we were told not to throw anything from it and that was a few years ago because of the possibility of things like this happening. I suppose the city has gotten lax about making sure that people who have floats know the rules about throwing things from the moving objects. The little girl suffered abdominal injuries as well as some facial injuries other then that I do not know her current condition. My prayers are with the family that God will heal this child. As for the ones on here talking about parents controlling children, you should not blame the parents for everything sometimes children move faster then our eyes see or our bodies move. Accidents happen the blame here should be on the city and the ones on the float for throwing the candy to begin with. We always want to tell our children not to take candy from strangers well..... People on floats ARE strangers. We don't want to think someone would poison our children,but who would think a pastor or a coach would sexually abuse a child!? You never know these days... As for the City of Elizabethton I say if you make a rule no candy to be thrown then STICK TO IT!!!!!!!!!

LOL. The Star has s VERY small articles on it, last page section A, in a corner, paragraph long and it states it happened near the parade. What a crock.

I totally, completely agree with the advice to parents to control your children!!!

It is terrible that it happened, but if more parents actually paid attention to their kids, we would see far less of these tragic stories.

I pray the little girl is alright. this is yet ANOTHER one of those accidents that could have been avoided if the parents had acted like parents.

I watched the 10 pm news on fox last night, they told about the girl, and also a woman who was drunk and texting ran through the parade barrier, hit a police car, and apparently knocked a police officer down. Anyone see this?
Just saying

How dare you call our children retards. Children are a very special gift from God, some more than others. For your information it was not a toothless, red neck, drunk or high on meth individual who ran over this little girl. It was an upstanding person in the community who is very well know. This was a accident and I know that they will have this guilt for the rest of their life what happened. Thankfully the end result was not death and she will get to spend Christmas with her family. Her guardian angel was protecting her. The children get so excited seeing the different floats and just waiting for the candy to be given out that things can happen just in a blink of an eye. If you want to talk about a moron high on medicine, let's talk about the DUI under the influence of medicine and texting on their phone who hit a city truck and then a police vehicle, one of the police officers was knocked to the ground and had to roll out of the way or they would of been killed. If it would of been a few minutes later this person would of ran right through the parade route and most likely killed several people with her stupid moves. Just think, this could of been your child that could of been ran over by this float or worse it could of been you hit by this DUI driver who was just standing.
