WEEPING WATER, Neb (KPTM) - Four people went to the hospital Sunday afternoon when a basketball hoop collapsed.

Weeping Water Fire Chief Earnest West told FOX 42 News two adults and two children were hit.

No names have been released.

It happened during a youth wrestling tournament at the Weeping Water High School gym.

Chief West says two medical choppers were called to the scene. Two victims went to Nebraska Medical Center, the other two went to a Lincoln hospital.

Chief West says the hoop was a folding hoop, and that a cable or bolt may have broken, causing it to drop down and hit the victims.

FOX 42 News is working to find out the victims' names and conditions.
