Schaefer Treated After Fall

Former Maryland Gov. William Donald Schaefer was treated in the emergency room at a Glen Burnie hospital this afternoon after stumbling and falling, a former aide and hospital spokeswoman said.

Schaefer (D) was taken to Baltimore Washington Medical Center for treatment of injuries sustained to his face, said Mike Golden, who served as Schaefer's spokesman during his tenure as Comptroller of Maryland and remains in touch with the 86-year-old Schaefer.

Mary Lanham, a spokeswoman for the hospital, said Schaefer, who also served as Baltimore's mayor, would likely need stitches in his nose. It was not clear Schaefer would remain in the hospital overnight, Lanham said.

I happened to see former governor Schaefer last fall and was amazed at how frail he is. I hope someone-friends/colleagues/family is arranging "help" for him...
