- Connecticut Sen. Richard Blumenthal says he’s undergoing surgery Sunday to repair a broke leg, the result of someone falling on him while participating in the University of Connecticut men’s basketball team parade.
- The Huskies last week won the men’s NCAA basketball title.
- The 77-year-old Blumenthal tweeted Saturday that he fractured his femur, but expects to make a full recovery.
“I did indeed fracture my femur after a fellow parade goer tripped & fell on me during the parade today,” he tweeted. “Routine surgery tomorrow just to make sure everything heals properly. I expect a full recovery!”
