COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - A South Carolina lawmaker has hurt her shoulder in a fall at the Statehouse.

Media outlets reported that Greenville Rep. Leola Robinson-Simpson fractured a shoulder in the fall.

Greenville Rep. Chandra Dillard told lawmakers this week about the 73-year-old Robinson-Simpson’s injury.

House Speaker Jay Lucas told the House on Wednesday evening that Robinson-Simpson contacted him and told him she was in pain and asked for prayers. House members then stood and prayed silently.

Robinson-Simpson has been in the House since 2013 and is a member of the House Medical, Military, Public and Municipal Affairs Committee and the House Regulations and Administrative Procedures Committee.

She is a former director of Greenville Technical College.
