Top US politician Mitch McConnell is in hospital in Washington, D.C., after he fell on Wednesday night.
The Senate Minority Leader was attending a private dinner at a hotel in the nation’s capital when he tripped, spokesman David Popp confirmed to Fox News.
The 81-year-old politician was taken to a nearby hospital to be treated. The extent of his injuries, if any, were not immediately known.
The full statement from McConnell’s camp read as follows:
“This evening, Leader McConnell tripped at a local hotel during a private dinner. He has been admitted to the hospital where he is receiving treatment.”
The senator suffered a fractured shoulder during a fall in August 2019. Mr Popp at the time said McConnell tripped and fell while he was outside on a patio at his Louisville home.
