Jean Biden Hospitalized after Fall

NBC Philadelphia news reported that 91-year-old and Vice President Biden's mother, Jean Biden, was injured by a fall at her home in Delaware Sunday, White House officials said, and was taken to a hospital in Pennsylvania.

The Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania confirmed there is a Secret Service at the hospital. The Associated Press additionally reported that a hospital spokeswoman confirmed Biden's placement, but was unable to release any further information.

Catherine Eugenia "Jean" Biden "is currently receiving treatment and is in good spirits," Elizabeth Alexander, Biden's spokeswoman, said in a statement after not immediately returning messages about Biden's condition.

The Biden family is from Claymont, Delaware, where Jean and her late husband, Joseph Sr., moved their family from Scranton, Pennsylvania when the Vice President, or, Joe Jr., was 11, NBC reported.

AP reported that she lives in a guesthouse at Biden's home in Greenville, a suburb of Wilmington.
