(ABC News) Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid may suffer permanent vision loss in his right eye after an injury sustained while exercising in his Nevada home last week, he said today.
During a radio interview with KNPR, the Democrat said he was going through his regular exercise routine, which he does three times a week and consists of "250 sit-ups," "some yoga type stuff" and using a resistance band, which he noted is "the second strongest you can get."
"The band broke, and it catapulted me backwards onto one side," Reid said. "I crashed into a series of cabinets we have and, fortunately, it missed my temple by just a little tiny bit and it hit me on my right eye and it broke a number of bones around my eye and broke four ribs."
