Ted Cruz Provides Update on Daughter's Condition

(DailyVantage.com) – On the evening of Tuesday, December 6, Houston first responders rushed to an emergency call at Senator Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) home in River Oaks around 8 p.m. While police were initially tight-lipped, it eventually came to light that emergency workers took one of Cruz’s daughters to the hospital with self-inflicted stab wounds. The senator has since spoken out about the ordeal but refrained from releasing any details.

According to TMZ, Cruz simply said that his daughter was “okay.” There are no further details about who made the phone call to the police or whether the senator was home at the time of the incident.

Cruz’s rep told ABC News it was a family matter and there were no serious injuries. It’s unclear whether the hospital released the girl.

The support for the Texas senator rolled in on social media after the news broke, with many offering their support and prayers. Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX) was among the first.

Cruz’s representative has asked that the public respect the family’s privacy at this time.

Nearly 5,000 teens commit suicide annually in the US, but between 500,000 and a million teens attempt it, according to the Suicide and Crisis Center of North Texas.
