Jill Biden underwent a “successful” medical procedure at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center “to flush out debris from a puncture wound” on her foot.
She injured her foot last weekend in Hawaii walking on a beach when an “object” lodged itself in her foot, the New York Times reported.
Jill Biden “underwent a successful procedure on her left foot to flush out debris from a puncture wound. After inspection of the wound by medical staff, it is unclear what object caused the puncture,” press secretary for the first lady, Michael LaRosa, said in a statement.
The White House says Biden’s wound is “clean, free of infection” and anticipated to “heal nicely.”
