From CNN Wire:
Former President George H.W. Bush fell Wednesday while at his summer home in Kennebunkport, Maine, breaking a vertebrae in his neck, but "it was not life threatening," his spokesman Jim McGrath told CNN.Bush is made of tough stuff. Three years ago he was in the intensive care unit suffering from a fever--and the ICU is never a good place for an elderly person to be in. But Bush quipped then through a spokesperson, "He would ask me to tell you to please 'put the harps back in the closet.'"
Bush was taken to a hospital in nearby Portland where he is "very stable," McGrath said.
The former president was never disoriented.
