We're going to turn next to the scare at the beach. Two girls parasailing, crashing into a building. Tonight, one year later to the day, new changes at the beach. Matt Gutman reports. Reporter: Trapped in that giant parachute, shooting down the coach like a lost kite. The cable to the boat snapping, sending the girls crashing into the building, then into a parked SUV. One year ago today, and Sidney is still recuperating. Tonight, the ntsb issuing a scathing report. Sidney's parents telling us they thought their daughter was in good hands. You assume she was safe. You expect that. Reporter: There are no federal guidelines, they can only recommend that operators be licensed by the coast guard. How does that make you feel? Not safe. Reporter: Sidney went back to the hospital today, to say thank you. I know. I know. Reporter: She has undergone multiple surgeries. Even if you think she's going to wake up, breathe on her own, they told us she may not talk or remember. Reporter: Today, she was walking on that same beach. Just an incredible recovery.
