Gioja returns to San Juan: 'To be back here is to live again'
San Juan Governor José Luis Gioja returned to his province this afternoon after being over 70 days in rehabilitation in Buenos Aires City, recovering from the accident he suffered last October when the helicopter he was traveling in collapsed after take-of.
Gioja arrived at 18:30hs at Pocito aeroclub in San Juan Province and was well received by fellow “sanjuaninos.”
"To be back in this land is to be alive again", Gioja said in a very emotional speech at Government's House.
"Thank you for your sweetness, for your prayers. Thanks to all of you who kept this beautiful province going", Gioja added in tears, and dedicated a special mention to his family and Italian Hospital in BA City, where he underwent physical rehabilitation therapy.
