KENNEBUNKPORT, Maine - Former President George H.W. Bush was hospitalized after a fall at his summer home here, CNN.com reported late Wednesday evening.

A family spokesperson said Bush, who was president from January 1989 to January 1993, broke his vertebrae in his neck but should recover completely. The spokesperson said the fall was not life threatening.

"We are not expecting a long stay (in the hospital)," Jim McGrath told the cable network. McGrath said doctors will likely treat the break with a neck brace.

Bush is 91-years-old.
