The daughter of Florida Sen. Marco Rubio has been released from the hospital and is recovering at home after being injured over the weekend in a golf-cart accident in a private gated community, according to a statement from the senator's office.
"Amanda Rubio is home this morning after being released from Miami Children's Hospital Sunday evening. She is recuperating from a concussion. Her condition has stabilized and should improve in the coming days. Her prognosis is good and she is expected to make a full recovery," the statement said.
Rubio and his wife, Jeanette, said they were "grateful for the many messages of support and prayers for their daughter. And grateful to the Miami-Dade Fire Department and the staff at the Pediatric Trauma Center at Miami Children's Hospital for their excellent care."
On Saturday, 12-year-old Amanda Rubio was airlifted to Miami Children's Hospital after she suffered a concussion in the accident, Rubio family friend Miami-Dade Commissioner Rebeca Sosa said.
Rubio was notified of the accident after coming off stage Saturday while campaigning with Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney in Kissimmee. Rubio left the campaign trail to return to Miami.
