Billy Graham hospitalized in NC after fall at home

Evangelis Billy Graham is in hospital after tripping and falling over one of his dogs at his North Carolina home.

The 89-year-old evangelist is in Mission Hospital in Asheville reportedly suffering from some discomfort and bruising.

A hospital spokeswoman says Graham is in fair condition and that X-rays show no broken bones.

William Franklin Graham Jr., KBE (born November 7, 1918) better known as Billy Graham, is an evangelist and an Evangelical Christian. He has been a spiritual adviser to multiple U.S. presidents and was number seven on Gallup’s list of admired people for the 20th century. He is a Southern Baptist.

* The good news is that there is no broken bone.  But Billy Graham will turn 90 years old in 4 weeks. 

Graham has suffered from prostate cancer and macular degeneration. He was hospitalized last year for nearly two weeks after experiencing intestinal bleeding.
