Rep. Steube announces injuries after a fall
Florida Republican Rep. Greg Steube, who was injured last week when he fell about 25 feet, has announced he is recovering from injuries including a fractured pelvis, punctured lung and torn ligaments.
“I am blessed to have an amazing team of supporters in my wife Jennifer as well as numerous friends and family including the Steube puppies!” a Monday tweet noted on the legislature’s Twitter account @RepGregSteube. “Grateful for everyone’s prayers and well wishes as I recover from a fractured pelvis, punctured lung and multiple 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 happened Wednesday when Steube was “thrown about 25 feet off a ladder while clipping branches on his Sarasota property,” according to a tweet from last week. Lawmakers emerged from the hospital on Saturday, according to another tweet.
“While I will be on hiatus in Sarasota for several weeks, I will perform as many of my congressional duties as I can, and our DC and district staff remain standing by to support Floridians in FL-17,” Steube noted in a Monday tweet. “I look forward to returning to my colleagues in Washington as soon as possible!” another post added.
After Alongside House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, Steube will sit on the federal government’s Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization.
“Glad to see you home my friend! Get well soon… America needs you back in the game!” Michigan GOP Rep. Bill Huizenga tweeted in response to Steube’s update on Monday.
“So proud of my friend and teammate for his courage in overcoming this,” said Pennsylvania Republican Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick tweeted.
Steube has served since 2019 in the US House of Representatives.
