Todd Palin hospitalized after snow machine accident; Sarah Palin cancels Trump appearance

(Fox News) - Todd Palin, the husband of Sarah Palin, was hospitalized after a serious snowmobile accident Sunday night, temporarily taking the former Alaska governor off the campaign trail for Donald Trump.

Sarah Palin, though, made a surprise appearance in Tampa, Fla., on behalf of Trump later Monday afternoon -- despite an initial statement from the Trump campaign saying she was returning to Alaska.

In the appearance, Palin thanked the public for their prayers as her husband recovers. She went on to slam the media for their coverage of unrest at Trump rallies and urged voters to back the primary front-runner, calling him a "revolutionary" that the country needs.

Palin later confirmed the snowmobile accident on her Facebook page calling her husband "the toughest guy I know."
