Actress Kristin Chenoweth is out of the hospital and recovering after being injured on the set of CBS' "The Good Wife."

"Kristin has been released from the hospital and is home recovering," her publicist told ABCNews.com. "She thanks everyone for their prayers and well wishes."

Chenoweth was hit in the head by falling lighting equipment Wednesday.

"While filming a scene for 'The Good Wife' in Brooklyn, a gust of wind blew a lighting silk out of place striking actress Kristin Chenoweth," CBS said in a statement. "All of us at the studio and the show are thinking about Kristin and wishing her a quick recovery."

A spokesman for the New York City Fire Department told TMZ that Chenoweth was being treated for "minor injuries" connected to the accident on Wednesday afternoon. The gossip site obtained photos of Chenoweth strapped to a stretcher before being loaded into an ambulance.

A witness said Chenoweth was hit "square in the head" and was "knocked out cold," according to TMZ.

Chenoweth, 43, won a Tony Award for her role in Broadway's "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown" and an Emmy Award for her work on "Pushing Daisies." She also appeared in the Broadway box office smash-hit "Wicked" from 2003-04. Chenoweth has a reoccurring role on "The Good Wife" this upcoming season.
