Republican Rep. Greg Steube of Florida, who was injured last week when he fell around 25 feet, has revealed that he is recovering from injuries including a fractured pelvis, punctured lung, and torn ligaments.
“I am blessed to have a great support team in my wife Jennifer as well as numerous friends and family, including the Steube pups!” a Monday tweet on the lawmaker’s @RepGregSteube Twitter account noted. “Grateful for everyone’s prayers and well-wishes as I recover from a fractured pelvis, a punctured lung, and several torn ligaments in my neck.”
A photo of the congressman shows him lying on a couch, with two dogs on top of him.
The fall occurred on Wednesday when Steube “was knocked approximately 25 feet down off a ladder while cutting tree limbs on his Sarasota property,” according to a tweet from last week. The lawmaker got out of the hospital on Saturday, according to another tweet.
“While I will be sidelined in Sarasota for several weeks, I will be carrying out as many of my congressional duties as possible, and our DC and district staff continue to be readily available to assist Floridians in FL-17,” Steube noted in a Monday tweet. “I’m eager to rejoin my colleagues in Washington as soon as possible!” another post added.
According to House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, Steube will sit on the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government.
“Glad to see you at home my friend! Heal up soon… America needs ya back in the game!” GOP Rep. Bill Huizenga of Michigan tweeted in response to Steube’s update on Monday.
“So proud of my friend and teammate in his courage to overcome this,” Republican Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania tweeted.
Steube has served in the U.S. House of Representatives since 2019.
