Bush falls, breaks bone in neck

KENNEBUNKPORT: George HW Bush, the oldest living former US president, fell at his summer home on Wednesday and broke a bone in his neck but was doing OK, a spokesman said. 

Bush, 91, was hospitalized in stable condition and was doing "fine'' after Wednesday's fall, spokesman Jim McGrath said. McGrath tweeted that the 41st president would be in a neck brace. 

Bush was being treated at Portland's Maine Medical Center, where a children's hospital is named for his wife. 

Bush, who has a form of Parkinson's disease that has forced him to use a motorized scooter or wheelchair for mobility, has suffered a few other recent health setbacks. He 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 care there.
