Korryn Bachner was a typical teenager living in a Chicago suburb when a terrible accident left her with third-degree burns over much of her body. After several days in the ICU, she was released home, but still needed ample recovery time before she could return to normal life. Nonetheless, Korryn’s friends made sure she was still able to enjoy one of the most important dances of a teenager’s life.
At the time of the incident, Korryn was a well-liked sophomore attending Glenbard East High School in Illinois. She was a cheerleader for the high school football team and enjoyed spending time with her friends. Life seemed to be going fine for the 15-year-old, until one night changed everything.
