George McGovern Released From SD Hospital

George McGovern Released From SD Hospital

Hospital officials say former Democratic presidential candidate George McGovern has been released from a South Dakota hospital after hitting his head during an earlier fall. 
Dr. Michael Elliott, chief medical officer at Avera McKennan Hospital and University Health Center in Sioux Falls, says McGovern continues to improve and doctors are pleased with his progress. 

The 89-year-old former senator was taken by helicopter late Friday to the Sioux Falls hospital after falling outside Dakota Wesleyan University's McGovern Library in Mitchell. A school official says McGovern hit his head on the pavement about two hours before he was scheduled to be interviewed on C-SPAN.

Elliott says it's important for McGovern to rest quietly until he has completely healed.
