Former U.S. President George H.W. Bush, 91, is recovering after breaking a bone in his neck, according to news reports Thursday. Bush was injured late Wednesday when he fell at his home in Kennebunkport, Maine. "His condition is stable -- he is fine -- but he'll be in a neck brace," Jim McGrath, a spokesman for Bush, wrote in a Twitter post. Bush was being treated at the Maine Medical Center in Portland. Late last year, the U.S.'s 41st president was treated for shortness of breath for about a week in a Houston hospital.
