Florida Rep. Greg Steube will be ‘sidelined’ from DC as he recovers after 25-foot fall

Rep Greg Steube (R-FL), who sustained injuries after falling more than 20 feet while cutting a tree outside his Sarasota home confirmed that he’ll “be carrying out as many of my congressional duties as possible” as he recovers at home following his discharge from hospital.

“All praise and glory goes to God!” Steube tweeted. “I’m grateful to be home and recovering after being discharged from the hospital today.” 

Steube also shared his thoughts on the accident with Fox News.

“I am blessed to have a great support team in my wife Jennifer as well as numerous friends and family, including the Steube pups! 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,” Rep. Greg Steube of Florida said.

Steube indicated his keenness to get back to work and also re-iterated that he will carry out as much work as he can while recovering.

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

A passer-by called 911 after Steube fell 25 feet from his ladder.  He was then rushed to Sarasota Memorial’s intensive care unit, where he spent 4 days.

Speaker of The House Kevin McCarthy, who reached out to Steube regarding his new committee assignment, also passed on his best wishes.

“He is in good spirits, and our entire conference prays for a swift recovery. I informed him he will serve on the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, and he is eager to get back to work” McCarthy tweeted on Thursday.
