Sarah Palin’s husband, Todd, was injured in the a snowmobile crash in Alaska. The former governor, who endorsed GOP frontrunner Donald Trump for president, participated in one Florida campaign stop Monday but cancelled another due to the accident.

Palin was on a recreational snowmobile ride with family Sunday but was found by a bystander after the crash. He is currently in serious but stable condition, Kevin Kastner, the executive director of Iron Dog Inc. told CNN. His surgery is scheduled for Tuesday.

“Thank you for your prayers for my husband who is recovering now in ICU after a little wreck on a snow machine,” Sarah Palin told a Trump crowd in Tampa. “All these real life issues that happen; it really does put things in perspective, doesn’t it?”
Trump’s campaign issued a statement wishing Palin well, saying, “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.”

Ted Cruz, GOP presidential candidate and Trump’s main challenger, also expressed his support for Palin’s husband via Twitter. “Saddened to hear the news about Todd,” he tweeted, “Heidi and I will be keeping him and the entire Palin family in our thoughts and prayers.”
