Former First Lady Nancy Reagan Hospitalized After Falling At Home

SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) — Former first lady Nancy Reagan is said to be doing well after falling at her home in Bel-Air, California.

Her spokeswoman says the 86-year-old Mrs. Reagan was taken to St. John’s Health Center, where doctors determined she did not break a hip as feared.

Joanne Drake says Reagan stayed overnight Sunday in the same room where former President Ronald Reagan stayed after he broke his hip at home in 2001. He died in June 2004.

Drake says Reagan’s family physician recommended the overnight stay “as a precaution.”

Nancy Reagan’s last major public appearance was at the January 30th Republican presidential debate at the Reagan Library in Simi Valley, California, where she sat with Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.
