US Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor breaks ankle
Tuesday, June 9, 2009
She was sent to a local medical office, where an X-ray was taken. Sotomayor was later released.
She has a cast wrapped around her ankle, which has been signed by a senator. Sotomayor's cast will be replaced after 3 weeks. She has been limping on her bad ankle, but otherwise seems to be okay.
"She flew to D.C. I think it was looked at when she got here, and she was advised to go get X-rays, which she did. I think she spent a couple of hours getting the cast, and the last time I saw video, (she was) up on Capitol Hill continuing to meet with senators as part of her meetings surrounding her nomination," said White House press secretary Robert Gibbs.
