Republican Congressman Recovering After Fracturing Pelvis In Fall

Congressman Greg Steube (R-FL) tweeted out news that he is currently recovering from numerous injuries suffered from a fall taken last week. Steube fell from 25 feet high last Wednesday while using a ladder to cut tree limbs.

“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 from Steube’s Twitter account reads.

“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,” the tweet continued.

The tweet also features a photo of Steube and two dogs recovering on a couch.

According to The Blaze, Steube “was knocked approximately 25 feet down off a ladder while cutting tree limbs on his Sarasota property,” suffering injuries bad enough to keep him in the hospital for over three days.

“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 wrote in a Monday tweet.

“I’m eager to rejoin my colleagues in Washington as soon as possible!”

Fellow Republican representatives took to Twitter to wish Steube well.

“Glad to see you at home my friend! Heal up soon… America needs ya back in the game!” Rep. Bill Huizenga (R-MI) tweeted.

Republican Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania also tweeted his support, writing, “So proud of my friend and teammate in his courage to overcome this.”

Steube will sit on the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, according to Speaker Kevin McCarthy, and he was also appointed to the powerful House Ways and Means Committee, a coveted assignment in Washington.

Ways and Means is the oldest committee in Congress according to a release from Steube’s office.

Steube has served in the U.S. House of Representatives since 2019.
