Boston Mayor Thomas Menino Breaks Leg, Back in Hospital
Boston Mayor Thomas Menino has had his fair share of health concerns, and is back in the hospital after breaking his leg.
7 News was the first to report on the accident. No word yet as to how he broke the leg, or how long he’ll be in the hospital. We’ll keep you updated as details come in.
In late 2012, Menino spent time in the hospital for treatment of a blood clot that spread to his lungs. At that point in time he was also dealing with back problems, and has been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.
Update 4:55pm – Menino apparently broke the leg Friday morning, but didn’t immediately know the severity of the injury until the afternoon, according to WBZ. It was at that point that he was told by his doctor that he should go the hospital. He broke the leg at an event at the Joseph Lee School.
