Colombia VP Thanks All Who Sent Kind Words after She Suffered a Fracture

BOGOTA – Colombian Vice President Maria Lucia Ramirez expressed her thanks Friday for the messages of affection, solidarity and compassion that she has received after suffering a fractured pelvis last Tuesday when she fell as she was getting out of her car.

“Unfortunately we all have accidents – this was a slip, but thank God, if we have a problem with the bones it doesn’t affect our brain, nor our love for Colombia, nor the desire nor the ability to always work for our country,” Ramirez said in a message issued by her office.

In that sense, she said that in hospital she is in constant contact with her team, dedicated to seeing how they can be “more efficient,” though she can’t be physically with them.

“We continue here fulfilling our great commitment to support the work of President Ivan Duque’s government,” Ramirez said.

The vice president, 63, who took office last Aug. 7, was hospitalized after doctors carried out several physical exams and discovered she had a “stable fracture of the pelvis.”

Ramirez, an attorney by profession, is the first woman to occupy the Colombian vice presidency.

In 2002 she was designated defense minister, and so became the first woman to hold that office as well.
