The 10-year-old girl, run over by a parade float, is back at home tonight. Sydney Burton was released from Children's Hospital in Dallas last night.
The accident happened during last Thursday's Longview Christmas parade. Witnesses say Sydney was riding with other children in the bed of a pick-up truck along the parade route. She lost her balance and was hit by a float behind the truck.
Sydney was initially taken to the Dallas hospital because of possible kidney injuries.
