2020 Democratic presidential candidate and Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders reportedly cut his head on a glass door and received seven stitches Friday morning.

“This morning, Sen. Sanders cut his head on the edge of a glass shower door. Out of precaution, he went to a walk-in clinic to have it checked out. He received seven stitches and was given a clean bill of health,” the Sanders campaign said in a statement.

The campaign also noted that despite the injury, Sanders proceeded with his scheduled events for the day and will still travel to Nevada for a campaign stop Saturday. (RELATED: Young Guns: Dems Could Have Five Candidates Over The Age Of 70)

“The [s]enator has proceeded with all of his scheduled events — joining a group of approximately 20 local clergy for breakfast this morning — and looks forward to joining a roundtable with South Carolinians this afternoon to discuss how we can provide high-quality affordable health care for all,” the campaign said. “He heads to Nevada this evening and looks forward to his rally in Henderson tomorrow.”

A photo of Sanders at the roundtable reveals a white patch over the area on the Senator’s forehead where he received stitches.
