Georgia U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson has been hospitalized after he fell and fractured four ribs.
In a news release Wednesday evening, the senator's spokeswoman Amanda Maddox said the 74-year-old fell in his Washington apartment Tuesday night.
Maddox says Isakson is "in pain, but resting and doing well."
Isakson was admitted to George Washington University Hospital.
In 2015 the three-term senator announced that he suffers from Parkinson’s disease. It was not immediately clear whether this week’s fall was related to this condition.
