Andy said his wife was stable and that swelling on the brain was decreasing. Once that is far enough down, doctors will be able to get a better idea of her prognosis, he said.

“With her spinal injuries, they’re not sure if she’ll have motor skills in her legs,” Andy said.

He asked for continued prayers for her recovery.

Brenda was working on a mechanical lift, washing windows in the Aquatic Center when the lift tipped over and she was injured in the fall, said Spring Lake Public Schools Superintendent Dennis Furton.

Emergency personnel were called to the pool area of the Center at 9:40 p.m. Saturday and found Brenda still in the cage where it fell, said Spring Lake Township Fire Chief Rick Nuvill.
