Former President George H.W. Bush fell at his home in Maine Wednesday, breaking a vertebrae in his neck.

Bush, who was at his summer home in Kennebunkport, Maine, was taken to the hospital, but according to spokesperson Jim McGrath, the injury "was not life threatening."

Bush, who was never disoriented, was taken to a hospital in nearby Portland, where he is "very stable," McGrath said.

President Obama called Bush Thursday morning to wish him a "speedy recovery," the White House said. Obama "extended best wishes on behalf of himself and the first lady," White House spokesman Eric Schultz said.

At 91, Bush has been hospitalized a few times in recent years: once in 2014 after suffering shortness in breath and in 2012 for bronchitis.

He and his wife appeared at several events last month in Maine to campaign for their son Jeb's presidential campaign.
