Harry Reid Reportedly Breaks ‘Ribs and Bones in His Face’ While Exercising


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.

According to Reid’s office, doctors expect him to make a full recovery, and he will return to Washington in time for the Senate to reconvene on Tuesday.
