HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal was discharged from a hospital Monday after a “completely successful” surgery on a minor leg fracture he sustained during the University of Connecticut’s victory rally on Saturday.

The 77-year-old Connecticut Democrat said on Twitter that he had surgery on his upper femur Sunday at Stamford Hospital and began physical therapy later that day. A spokesperson said the operation included installing some pins to make sure it heals properly.

News 8’s video of the mishap shows Blumenthal walking in the parade in downtown Hartford when he was bumped from behind by a man walking backward with a camera. Their legs appeared to get tangled briefly, and both men fell into the street. People tended to Blumenthal, who got back up and finished the route.

“First, HUGE congratulations to the NATIONAL CHAMPION Quinnipiac Bobcats men’s hockey team,” the senator tweeted. “Last night’s historic overtime win was spectacular and we are all so excited and proud. Rand Pecknold and his team have built the program into a true powerhouse.”

“I did indeed fracture my femur after a fellow parade goer tripped & fell on me during the parade today,” he added. “I expect a full recovery!”

A spokesperson said Blumenthal would be at his home in Greenwich during the Congressional recess this week, doing physical and participating in virtual events.

Blumenthal plans to return to Washington next week for votes and hearings.
