Get well soon, George H.W. Bush!
The former president, 91, was hospitalized on Wednesday, July 15 after suffering a fall at his summer home in Kennebunkport, Maine, his spokesperson, Jim McGrath, revealed on Twitter.

"[Bush] fell at home in Maine today and broke a bone in his neck," McGrath wrote. "His condition is stable — he is fine — but he'll be in a neck brace."
On Thursday morning, the politician's pregnant granddaughter Jenna Bush Hager provided an update on George's condition following the accident. "He's doing okay. He's not the typical 91-year-old. He jumped out of a plane, so I think he can manage a minor neck injury," she said on Today, making reference to his 2014 skydiving trip to ring in his 90th birthday.
