George McGovern Falls Before Planned TV Appearance

December 2, 2011, 8:14 PM

George McGovern Falls Before Planned TV Appearance
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Former Democratic presidential candidate George McGovern has been hospitalized after falling and
hitting his head while getting ready for a live interview on C-SPAN.

McGovern's daughter Ann McGovern says her father fell in Mitchell, S.D., and is being transported by helicopter to a Sioux Falls hospital.

The former South Dakota senator was getting set to take part in a live program called "The Contenders," focusing on failed presidential candidates who changed the landscape of American politics.

Ann McGovern says the injury is unrelated to her 89-year-old father's hospitalization in late October for exhaustion.

McGovern fell outside of the Dakota Wesleyan University's McGovern Library in Mitchell, which is across the street from one of his homes. Witnesses say he was bleeding profusely but conscious and talking.
