Rep. Giffords moved to nearby rehab facility


HOUSTON (WKOW) -- Doctors say Arizona U.S. Rep. Gabrielle is in good condition now.

Giffords has been moved to a rehabilitation facility in Houston after her condition was upgraded from serious to good.

Doctors at Memorial Hermann Texas Medical Center Hospital decided the congresswoman was ready to move Wednesday morning to nearby TIRR Memorial Hermann.

An ambulance took Giffords just after 8:30 a.m. Helicopters flew overhead and there was a heavy police presence.

Giffords had been in intensive care since her arrival Friday from Tucson, Ariz.

She was shot in the head Jan. 8 in a rampage that killed six people and injured her and 12 others.
