According to Inforum.com, Sen. Kevin Cramer of North Dakota suffered a serious injury to his hand while doing yardwork. This news came out yesterday (Wednesday, June 22nd).

The Incident

The source reported that Sen. Cramer has a beach-like swimming area at his home. A rock from this area rolled onto his hand, crushing his ring finger and ripping off the tip of his pinkie. The injury he sustained was to his right hand.

Possible Amputation

Sen. Cramer (R - N.D.)  was taken to Sanford Hospital in Bismarck. According to the washingtonpost.com, the injury is severe enough to where doctors may have to amputate part of his pinkie finger.

Sen. Cramer issued a statement on his website to let people know he's okay.

 

"While working in the yard over the weekend, I sustained a serious injury to my right hand, which required immediate surgery. I continue to remain in North Dakota close to medical care as there is a high risk of infection and the possible need for finger amputation. I am alert and in good spirits," said Sen. Kevin Cramer.

He continued...

"Although I am missing this week of votes and hearings, I am monitoring Senate business closely and in constant contact with my colleagues and staff. I plan to return to Washington, after the Independence Day state work period and expect to be doling out a lot of left-handed fist bumps," said Sen. Kevin Cramer.
