According to the Washington Examiner, Steube fell from a height of approximately 25 feet while doing routine home maintenance.
Steube’s office published a tweet soon after the event, noting that he suffered several injuries.
Congressman Steube was involved in an accident on his property late this afternoon and has sustained several injuries. We will provide additional updates when possible. Please pray for the Congressman and his family.

Headline USA sent a follow-up email to Steube’s spokesperson, Sadie Thorman, and will update with any new developments.
Florida GOP Vice Chair Christian Ziegler noted on Twitter that Steube is in stable condition at the Sarasota hospital.
I just heard that even though Congressman @RepGregSteube is still in the hospital, he is doing well. Big relief to hear.
Our country, state & local community needs him to recover and get back to fighting for us in Congress ASAP.

“I just heard that even though Congressman @RepGregSteube is still in the hospital, he is doing well. Big relief to hear,” Ziegler tweeted.
“Please join Ann and me in wishing Greg a speedy recovery. We’re keeping him and the Steube family in our prayers,” Scott tweeted.
Steube, 44, has been in Congress since 2019 representing the outer suburbs of Sarasota and Fort Myers through the Everglades. Prior to his congressional career he served in the Florida state Senate.
“I firmly believe that Washington’s going to turn into a completely overrun, mob rule type environment when that happens,” Steube said at the time. “Right now, if you go anywhere by the Supreme Court, there is tons of security, wire like fencing up to where you can’t climb it, people all over, security all over in anticipation of this.”
