George HW Bush, 91, Falls at Maine Home, Breaks Bone in Neck

A spokesman said former President George H.W. Bush fell at home on Wednesday and broke a bone in his neck but was doing OK.
Spokesman Jim McGrath said 91-year old Bush was in stable condition and was doing "fine" after Wednesday's fall. McGrath tweeted that the 41st president would be in a neck brace.
Bush, the oldest living former U.S. president, was hospitalized in Houston in December for about a week for treatment of shortness of breath. He said he was "grateful to the doctors and nurses for their superb care" after his treatment there.
He spent Christmas 2012 in intensive care at the same Houston hospital while being treated for a bronchitis-related cough and other issues. He was discharged in January 2013 after a nearly two-month stay.
He has a form of Parkinson's disease that has forced him in recent years to use a motorized scooter or wheelchair for mobility.
