(Newser) – The elder George Bush has suffered what sounds like a scary fall—he "broke a bone in his neck," says spokesman Jim McGrath via tweet. But McGrath adds that it's not life-threatening. George HW Bush, 91, fell at home in Kennebunkport, Maine, and remains hospitalized in Portland, Maine, reports CNN. "We are not expecting a long stay," says McGrath, who adds that the former president never lost consciousness. "He is fine -- but he'll be in a neck brace," says the tweet.
