A college gymnast died Sunday, two days after she sustained a serious injury during gymnastics training at Southern Connecticut State University. She was injured Friday and died Sunday at Yale-New Haven Hospital.

"We are humbled by the outpouring support from our Milford community (our small town with a big heart) and beyond", her family said in the statement.

The family of the CT gymnast who died in a freak accident after slipping off uneven bars in practice said in on Monday that she'll be "deeply missed by all those who crossed paths with her".

Ken Sweeten, a spokesperson for Southern Connecticut State, confirmed to CNN Monday that Coleman fell during what he described as a "routine training exercise" on the uneven bars.

'She was an incredibly hard worker and a sweet-spirited young woman. Our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to her family at this time.

"What made her a great gymnast is also what made her a great person", Alberti added.
