Doctors Upgrade Rep. Scalise's Condition To 'Serious'

Doctors Upgrade Rep. Scalise's Condition To 'Serious'

The hospital where Rep. Steve Scalise is recuperating from a gunshot wound says he "remains in critical condition, but has improved in the last 24 hours".

Doctors rushed Mr Scalise to surgery, pumping blood into his body to counteract his multiple haemorrhages. "I would say that when he arrived, he was in critical condition with an imminent risk of death".

"I feel a lot more confident and a lot more optimistic than I did two or three days ago".

Sava said that after being released from the hospital, Scalise "will require a period of healing and rehabilitation".

Bailey is a member of Congressman Steve Scalise's protective detail.

Mexico strikes late for draw against Portugal
The Confederations Cup Group A match between Portugal and Mexico will kick off at 6:00pm local time , 8:30pm IST and 11:00am EST. Chile is ranked fourth, but lacks the same tradition as Portugal and Mexico and has struggled in South American qualifying.

Hodgkinson was fatally shot during an exchange on gunfire with police during the rampage. The bullet that struck Scalise tore through his pelvis, fracturing bones, injuring internal organs and causing severe bleeding, the hospital said. Although "infection is a significant risk", the physician said, "an excellent recovery is a good possibility".

Steve Scalise, who was shot in the left hip, had surgery Thursday related to his internal injuries and a broken bone in his leg.

The Maori ran the ball with less abandon than expected and couldn't get their attack going, bar a breakaway try for Liam Messam . As the rain began to whip around in Rotorua, the visitors were beginning to take advantage of deteriorating conditions.

The hospital has further stated that Scalise will need to undergo further operations. Scalise was hit as a gunman sprayed bullets into a GOP congressional baseball practice outside Washington D.C.

It emerged Hodgkinson had a social media page filled with criticism of Republicans and the Trump administration.

Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona, who was at Wednesday's practice and gave medical help after the shooting, said it would have "been awful" if the game had been canceled, and said Scalise would want it to go on.

The game at Nationals Park, Washington DC, carried on a century-old bipartisan ritual, this one tinged with worry about Louisiana Republican Mr Scalise, 51, and the determination to answer the attack by coming together in sport. "If you belong to the gym, they think 'well, that's a perk you shouldn't have,"' said Rep. Mike Doyle of Pennsylvania, the manager of the Democratic team.

The shooter is identified as James T. Hodgkinson, 66, of Belleville, Illinois. "He clearly knows that they're there and appreciates their presence", Sava said.

Witness Cynthia Vanzella told Sky News she was trying to sleep when she heard a lot of noise outside. Few details of the attack have been revealed, and the identity of the suspect is still unknown.

Federal Bureau of Investigation special agent in charge Tim Slater said it was "too early to say" whether it was an act of terrorism, or whether Scalise was targeted. His aide, Zack Barth, who was shot by the Virginia assailant, walked across the field on crutches.
