Todd Palin In ICU After Accident

Published: March 15, 2016

Todd Palin In ICU After Accident, “Todd Palin is in intensive care at an Alaskan hospital with injuries including multiple broken and fractured ribs, broken shoulder blade, broken clavicle, knee/leg injuries; and a collapsed lung,” Palin wrote. “He is presently back in surgery to repair multiple fractures. Thank you for your prayers for a speedy recovery. We, as his wife and children, appreciate your respect for our privacy during this time. Knowing Todd, once he’s cognizant, he’ll probably ask docs to duct tape him up and he’ll call it good. He’s tough.”

In an earlier post, she wrote: “Todd is our rock toughest guy I know. Thank you for your prayers as he recovers following a snow machine accident last night. You know, your prayers have meant so much to our family over the years and I’ve not thanked you enough for providing us that shield of faith. God bless you, too! As any adventurous Alaskan knows, while you may be down, you’re never out. I remember Chris Kyle summed up Todd best – ‘He’s Rambo. Straight up Rambo!’ On the cross country flights taking me back home now, I’m thinking of all of you, and sincerely appreciating your support.”

Palin also addressed her husband’s injuries on Monday at a Trump rally in Tampa Bay, Fla.

“Thank you, guys, for your prayers for my husband who is recovering right now in the ICU after a little wreck on a snow machine,” she said, as the Associated Press reported. ” When real life happens, it really puts things in perspective doesn’t it?”

Details about the crash weren’t immediately available, though the Alaska Dispatch-News noted only one snowmobile was involved. The paper also reported that Todd Palin was involved in another snowmobile accident in 2008 when his “snow machine,” as snowmobiles are also known, hit a barrel obscured by snow during a race. He was thrown 70 feet from the vehicle and broke his arm.

The Palins have had a turbulent year. The day before Sarah Palin announced her support for Donald Trump in January, her son Track, an Iraq combat veteran, was arrested on domestic-violence charges after a fight with his girlfriend, who said she was concerned he would take his own life with an AR-15 rifle. After the incident, Palin connected it to Obama’s alleged poor treatment of veterans.

“When my own son is going through what he goes through coming back, I can certainly relate to the families who feel these ramifications of PTSD,” she said. “And it makes me realize more than ever it is now or never for the sake of America’s finest that we have a commander-in-chief who will respect them.”
