A statement released to reporters from Senator Harry Reid’s office claims Reid spent much the first day of the new year in the hospital after suffering a nasty accident while exercising.
The statement asserts that “a piece of equipment Senator Reid was using to exercise broke, causing him to fall and break a number of ribs and bones in his face.”
Reid was reportedly first brought to St. Rose Dominican Hospital in Henderson to treat the injury before he was transferred to the University Medical Center in Las Vegas, where he remained overnight.But this isn't the first time Harry has fought exercise equipment and lost. From the Daily Mail:
Thursday marked Reid’s second exercise-related mishap in three years.
He dislocated his shoulder and bumped his forehead in May 2011 when he slipped and fell during a morning jog in the rain.
Reid leaned on a wet car near his home in Washington, D.C.’s Ritz-Carlton hotel and tumbled to the ground.
That fall left him with a contusion just below his left eye, but he was back in action later that night at a fundraiser for California Sen. Barbara Boxer.Coincidence or just a convenient excuse for....who knows what. You be the judge.
