Charlie Sheen to Help Amusement Park Victim

by Associated Press posted Feb 15 2013 5:37PM
  MILWAUKEE (AP) - A Florida teenager who plummeted 100 feet from a Wisconsin amusement park ride in 2010 is getting some help from actor Charlie Sheen.
 
     Teagan Marti (TEE'-gehn MAHR'-tee) suffered brain, spine, pelvis and internal injuries when nets and air bags that were supposed to catch riders on the free-fall ride were not raised. She was paralyzed initially but through physical therapy is now able to walk with a walker.
 
     A Marti family friend in Eau Claire asked Sheen for $6,000 to cover therapy dog training, and Sheen wired $10,000 on Thursday.
 
     Sheen said he found it impossible not to help after getting the request and he likes to "pay it forward."
 
     The 15-year-old said she didn't really know much about Sheen before but now thinks he's kind and generous.
