(Dallas, TX) After Harlem Globetrotter, William Bull Bullard heard that 16-year-old Makenzie Wethington’s skydiving accident prevented her from being able to see The Original Harlem Globetrotters last week, he made a special trip to Dallas just to see her.
Wethington was celebrating her 16th birthday by taking a skydiving trip to Oklahoma. She jumped just after her father, but her primary parachute didn’t open. She survived a 3,500-foot drop to the ground, coming away with only broken bones and internal injuries but lives to tell the story.
Bull rescheduled a flight on Wednesday, Feb. 5, and spent time with Makenzie and her family. Makenzie, who is walking and back spinning basketballs, traded stories and tricks with Bull. Bull had his own scare recently when a hoop crashed on him in Honduras.
