According to a statement today from the Nevada Senator’s office, Reid was hurt after a piece of equipment he was using broke, which caused him to fall. He broke a “number of ribs and bones in his face,” but his doctors expect a full recovery.

Reid was first brought to St. Rose Dominican Hospital in Henderson, outside of Las Vegas, and was then transferred to University Medical Center in Las Vegas for further testing. He was “admitted overnight as a precaution.”
