Minnie Gonzalez falls down Capitol stairs

Rep. Minnie Gonzalez, D-Hartford, was taken to a hospital by ambulance Tuesday after falling down a flight of stone stairs at the State Capitol.

Witnesses said Gonzalez appeared to unconscious after the fall, but House Majority Leader J. Brendan Sharkey, D-Hamden, told the House at the close of the session Tuesday night that tests were negative and Gonzalez was resting at home.

“No broken bones. Nothing serious,” Sharkey said.
