Former President George H.W. Bush has been hospitalized after breaking a bone in his neck in a fall at his home in Kennebunkport, Maine.

In a Tweet on Wednesday night, Bush spokesman Jim McGrath said “41 fell at home in Maine today and broke a bone in his neck. His condition is stable — he is fine — but he’ll be in a neck brace.”

Mr. Bush, who turned 91 on June 12, will be kept overnight at Maine Medical Center in Portland, NBC News reported.

The 41st president of the United States was hospitalized in December after experiencing shortness of breath. He was hospitalized for several months in 2012 due to bronchitis.
