ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Todd Palin, husband to former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, was seriously injured in a snow machine crash in Alaska on Sunday night and is in intensive care, a source close to the Palin family told CNN Monday.
Sarah Palin participated one Trump campaign event in Florida on Monday, but canceled another so she could return to Alaska.
“Thank you guys for your prayers for my husband who is recovering now in ICU after a little wreck on a snow machine,” Palin told an audience in Tampa. “All these real life issues that happen it really does put things in perspective, doesn’t it?”
Earlier in the day, the campaign for GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump issued a statement saying, “Todd Palin was in a bad snow machine accident last night and is currently hospitalized. Gov. Palin is returning to Alaska to be with her husband and looks forward to being back on the campaign trail soon. Mr. Trump’s thoughts and prayers are with the Palin family at this time.”
Palin’s cancellation comes two days after Trump scrapped a rally in Chicago due to protests. The number of protesters at Trump’s rallies has grown over the past couple of weeks.
The 2008 vice presidential nominee endorsed the business mogul in January.
