The Houston Chronicle reports:
Houston police responded to the River Oaks home of Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Tuesday night after receiving a call concerning an injured individual on the premises, ABC 13’s Jessica Willey reports.
HPD officials told Willey that an unidentified teenager was transported from Cruz’s home to a nearby hospital after authorities arrived at the residence. The senator’s office has since issued a statement on the incident. Cruz and his wife Heidi are parents to two daughters.
“This is a family matter and thankfully their daughter is okay,” a representative told Willey. “There were no serious injuries. The family requests the media respect their daughter’s privacy at this time.”

Anna and I send blessings and support to @tedcruz, his daughter and family. As the father of three young children, I hope folks will show respect and understanding for the family’s pain and privacy. Whatever your perspective, this is a time for grace not viciousness. https://t.co/d9qekkgLjQ

Hoping Ted Cruz’ daughter is ok. She came out as bi earlier this year and while no one knows specifically why she engaged in self-harm, it’s important to note that bisexual youth are at disproportionate risk of suicide attempts with 27% attempting it. https://t.co/BRUdZKNprv pic.twitter.com/AS79zT90rp
