The family of a woman seriously injured in an eastern Nebraska school gym accident has issued a statement.

The husband of Lori Williams issued the statement Friday through The Nebraska Medical Center, saying Williams has undergone several operations since being taken to the Omaha hospital on Sunday. Tim Williams also expressed gratitude for the "thoughts, prayers and kind gestures from family members and friends during such a trying time for our family."

The statement does not give Lori Williams' age or residency.

She was one of four people, including two children, injured when a folded-up basketball hoop fell from the ceiling of the Weeping Water School gymnasium on Sunday. The names and conditions of the other three injured have not been released.
