LAKEWOOD CREST, Fla. -

The 12-year-old daughter of Florida Sen. Marco Rubio was airlifted to Miami Children's Hospital after a golf cart accident Saturday.

A Rubio spokesman said Amanda Rubio, the senator's oldest daughter, is in stable condition after a head injury.

According a statement released by the senator's office, Amanda was a passenger on a golf cart involved in a collision in a private gated community while she was visiting with classmates.

The 12-year-old was airlifted to the hospital, where she was admitted to the pediatric intensive care unit.

Miami-Dade Commissioner Rebeca Sosa spoke about the girl's condition at Miami Children's Hospital just before 9 p.m. Saturday.

Sosa said Rubio was praying for his daughter at her bedside.

"He was there next to his daughter, which is the most important part," said Sosa.

The Republican senator was notified of the accident while coming off stage after a rally with GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney Saturday afternoon.

The senator campaigned with Romney at two Florida rallies, including one event in Kissimmee, on Saturday and was scheduled to attend a third before being picked up by a state police cruiser along Romney's motorcade route.

Rubio has received an outpouring of support after the accident, including a personal message from Romney and calls from both President Obama and Vice President Biden, Rubio's spokesman said.
