Broken neck: George H.W. Bush was injured in a fall

Former US President George H.W. Bush has broken his neck in a fall, it emerged today.

Spokesman Jim McGrath said the 91-year-old broke a bone in his neck in the incident, which happened at his home in in Maine on Wednesday.

"His condition is stable - he is fine - but he’ll be in a neck brace," McGrath said on Twitter.

McGrath told CNN that Bush, 91, was being treated in a hospital in Portland, Maine.

Bush was never disoriented and his stay at the facility was not expected to be long, McGrath said.

In December, Bush, who has a home in Kennebunkport, Maine, spent a week at a Houston hospital after experiencing breathing difficulties.

The former Republican president served from 1989 to 1993, his term defined by his aggressive response to Iraqi President

Saddam Hussein’s invasion of Kuwait in 1990. He lost the election for a second term to President Bill Clinton.
