Sotomayor in a Cast

Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor tripped while walking through LaGuardia Airport this morning, and fractured her ankle.

Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor was taken to George Washington University Medical Center in the District this morning for X-rays of her right ankle after stumbling at the La Guardia airport in New York, White House officials said.

The X-ray revealed a small fracture in her ankle. She was released from the hospital after less than two hours and is now using crutches, said Ben LaBolt, an assistant press secretary at the White House.

“This morning, on the way to Washington, D.C., Judge Sotomayor tripped at LaGuardia Airport. After an X-ray at Medical Faculty Associates, it was determined that Judge Sotomayor has a small fracture in her right ankle,” LaBolt said. “She has been treated and released, and is looking forward to keeping her full schedule of meetings on Capitol Hill this afternoon.”

LaBolt said Sotomayor was rushing through the hallways at LaGuardia to catch her flight when she injured her foot. He said she boarded her plane despite the injury and traveled to the Old Executive Office Building next to the White House before determining that she needed treatment.
