US Congressman Shot on Ball Field Is Recuperating
« on: June 19, 2017, 08:16:51 AM »


The U.S. congressman who was shot and seriously injured in an attack on Republican lawmakers is showing “signs of improvement,” hospital officials said Saturday.

Representative Steve Scalise, a member of the House Republican leadership, underwent more surgery Saturday, according to officials at the hospital in the nation’s capital where he was admitted after Wednesday’s attack on a sports field in nearby Virginia.

A statement released by the MedStar Washington Hospital Center said Scalise’s condition had been upgraded, and that he was now listed as serious, rather than critical. On Friday, a senior doctor at the hospital said Scalise, 51, had been at the brink of death because of extensive blood loss when he arrived at the hospital by helicopter.
