Gibbons released from hospital after horse accident


CARSON CITY -- Nevada Gov. Jim Gibbons has been released from a rehabilitation hospital and will continue therapy for a broken pelvis at the Governor's Mansion in Carson City.

The 65-year-old Republican governor was bucked from a horse at a private ranch north of Reno on Sept. 21. He broke his pelvis in two places and underwent surgery. Doctors inserted several screws to repair the damage.

Gibbons' office announced he was released from Renown Regional Medical Center's rehabilitation unit over the weekend. He will work from his office at the mansion and attend meetings through teleconference.

His staff said he will be using a wheelchair or walker for several weeks and will continue out-patient therapy.
