It was announced yesterday (July 15) that former President George H.W. Bush, 91, had broken a bone in his neck after a fall at his home in Maine.

His official spokesman was, however, quick to say that the injury was not life-threatening, taking to social media to share an update:

By referring to Bush as 41, rather than by his name, McGrath denoted his status as the 41st President.

As a result of the fall, Bush will require a neck brace, but McGrath told CNN that he is not expected to stay in hospital for long, adding in a statement:

"The president never lost consciousness, and the injury he sustained neither impinged on his spine nor resulted in any neurological deficits."

Bush has been hospitalized twice in the past three years - first in 2012 after contracting bronchitis and then again last year suffering from shortness of breath. The father to former President George W. Bush also announced several years ago that he was suffering from a form of Parkinson's Disease, now moving around using a wheelchair or a scooter.

Everyone here at PopWrapped wishes him a speedy recovery.
