Former US President George H.W. Bush hospitalised

Former US President George H.W. Bush has been taken to the hospital after experiencing low blood pressure and fatigue. The 93-year-old is expected to remain at Southern Maine Health Care for a few days for observation, according to family spokesman Jim McGrath. McGrath said on Twitter that Bush was “awake and alert, and not in any discomfort.” Bush was previously hospitalized in Texas last month, a day after he attended the funeral of his wife, Barbara.
