Scalise has more surgery as authorities track shooter's path

Parmenio Sano | 18 Giugno, 2017, 04:13

Steve Scalise, the third-ranking House Republican shot Wednesday on a Virginia baseball field outside Washington, remains in critical condition but has a chance for an "excellent recovery", the chief trauma doctor at a Washington hospital said Friday.

In a statement Thursday, a hospital spokesman said Scalise's condition was "critical with imminent risk of death" when he was admitted, but was improving after several surgeries. "We have controlled the bleeding and his vital signs have stabilized".

Sava said Scalise would need to undergo an additional operation within the next 48 hours and more beyond that.

Scalise, the No. 3 House Republican, sustained injuries to internal organs, broken bones and severe bleeding after being shot in his left hip on Wednesday morning on a baseball field in a Washington, D.C., suburb.

The risk is lower than when Scalise was brought in to the hospital, Sava noted, adding that he more confident and optimistic about the congressman's condition.

Scalise, 51, is among four people shot by a gunman at a House Republican baseball practice Wednesday in the Washington suburbs.


Just before the game Thursday night, members of the Democratic and Republican teams knelt together in prayer near second place, where Scalise would have been playing.

President Trump delivered a videotaped statement, saying, "we will not be intimidated. the game will go on". Medical staff said that he is sedated but does seem to know that his family is with him. Scalise's Capitol Police detail, two officers of whom were among the injured, has been credited with saving the lives of many present. Representative Joe Barton of Texas accepted the trophy on Scalise's behalf.

Sava said that after being released from the hospital, Scalise "will require a period of healing and rehabilitation". Because the bullet shattered, there may be hundreds of fragments in Scalise's body and doctors do not intend to try to remove them all, Sava said.

He said it is now hard to predict how long Scalise will need to remain in the hospital but they should have a better idea of that in the coming days. "And certainly whatever you think of the world critical, he was as critical as you can be when he came in".

"I was surprised by some of the reports also", Sava said.

"We may have our differences, but we do well, in times like these, to remember that everyone who serves in our nation's capital is here because, above all, they love our country", he said. He received multiple units of blood, said Sava, who declined to describe the exact nature of Scalise's internal injuries.
