NEENAH, Wis. (AP) - A mother who survived the May 3 shooting on a Menasha park bridge says she has a long road ahead, but she’s grateful for the support she’s received.

Erin Stoffel led two of her children to safety but was shot three times. WTMJ-TV reports she’s in good condition at a Neenah hospital.

Her husband, Jon, and 11-year-old daughter, Olivia, were killed. Another man, Adam Bentdahl, was also fatally shot by Sergio Valencia del Toro, who took his own life.

Stoffel’s statement was released Tuesday by her surgeon.

She says Jon was an incredible husband and father and Olivia had a heart of gold. She says: “I miss them so much and the pain is deep.”

She says she’ll be strong for her surviving children.
