Dianne Feinstein, the Democratic Senator from California, was hospitalized briefly on Tuesday due to a fall, according to a spokesperson. This incident adds to a series of health challenges faced by the oldest member of the US Senate.
According to a statement from the spokesperson, “Senator Feinstein briefly went to the hospital yesterday afternoon as a precaution after a minor fall in her home, as a precautionary measure, adding that “the scans conducted showed no issues, and she has since returned home.”
The initial report about Feinstein’s fall was provided by TMZ.
Feinstein, 90, has been under scrutiny regarding her health in recent times. Earlier this year, she took an extended leave of absence after being diagnosed with shingles, prompting members of her own political party to call for her resignation from the Senate seat.
This is a developing story and will be revised as more updates become available.
