GIBSON CO., IN (WFIE) - A student at Gibson Southern High School was badly hurt during class Wednesday.

911 records show the call came in at 9:36 a.m.

14 News reached out to Superintendent Dr. Stacey Humbaugh Wednesday afternoon and again Thursday morning. She would not confirm the incident either time, but did confirm it when we reached out a third time just after noon Thursday.

She says an overhead door fell on a student.

Dr. Humbaugh says power is now off to the door while crews work to fix it and find out what happened.

We've spoken with family of the student who wish to remain private at this time.

Close family friends tell us the student was in surgery for nine hours Wednesday.
