Billy Graham hospitalized after fall at N.C. home

ASHEVILLE, N.C. (BP)–Evangelist Billy Graham was admitted to an Asheville, N.C., hospital May 14 after enduring a fall at his home. Initial tests indicated he may have sustained a hairline fracture to his pelvis.

Graham, who is scheduled to preach at two crusades this summer, was in stable condition. Graham, 85, had been at home recovering from a partial hip replacement, which he received in January.

“Further tests will be performed to assess the extent of his injuries, guide the treatment plan and determine the time needed for full recovery,” a statement by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association stated. “Rev. Graham said he is resting comfortably and expressed gratitude for prayers on his behalf.”

Graham is scheduled to preach at crusades in Kansas City, Mo., June 17-20, and Los Angeles, July 29-Aug 1.
