George McGovern hospitalized after fall

Former US presidential candidate George McGovern hospitalized after falling By The Associated Press

SIOUX FALLS, South Dakota (AP) ' Former U.S. presidential candidate George McGovern has been hospitalized after falling and hitting his head while getting ready for a live television interview.

McGovern's daughter Ann McGovern tells The Associated Press that her father is being transported by helicopter to a South Dakota hospital. Her father had been preparing for a C-SPAN program called "The Contenders," focusing on failed presidential candidates who changed the landscape of American politics.

McGovern ran for president against incumbent Richard Nixon in 1972 and lost in a historic landslide.

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

Witnesses say McGovern was bleeding profusely but conscious and talking.
