US Senator Daniel Inouye was treated and released from the hospital after sustaining a minor cut to the back of his head in a fall this morning, officials said.
“He did not lose consciousness but was taken to the Bethesda Naval Hospital as a precaution and treated and released,” said press officials with Sen. Inouye’s office.
“The US Army captain and World War II combat veteran wanted to put a bandage on and come to work but his family insisted he get it checked out,” a media release from his office stated.
The senator and his family thank everyone for the well wishes and support.
Officials say the senator is fine and resting at home.
