From The Trussville Tribune staff reports
Kendall Ainsworth, wife of Republican Lt. Governor candidate Will Ainsworth suffered an injury while the family was skeet shooting on Tuesday, according to a statement from the campaign.
“God was looking after our family this afternoon,” Will Ainsworth said via social media. “We are on our way to the Huntsville Hospital. Kendall got injured in a gun accident, but is stable and okay. We are thankful it doesn’t appear serious, but covet your prayers while the doctors treat her.”
State Representative Danny Garrett of Trussville said Kendall Ainsworth was home and doing well on Tuesday night.
“While skeet shooting with our family on Tuesday evening, my wife Kendall was involved in a minor accident and suffered an injury that required staples,” Will Ainsworth said in a statement later Tuesday night. “Through God’s grace and intercessory prayers of thousands of family members, friends and supporters, the emergency room doctors who treated her injury predict a full recovery and she was released shortly after being treated.”
Will Ainsworth said he would be stepping away from the campaign for a few days to take care of his wife.
In a text message, he expressed gratitude and appreciation for all of the prayers for his wife.
