BREAKING: Ruth Bader Ginsburg Suffers Bad Fall At Court; Breaks 3 Ribs

The Supreme Court’s oldest Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg broke three ribs after a fall in her office in the court and has been admitted to the hospital, according to the Associated Press.

As the AP points out, “she went to George Washington University Hospital in Washington early Thursday after experiencing discomfort overnight. She was admitted to the hospital for treatment and observation after tests showed she fractured three ribs.”

As the Daily Caller reports, Ginsburg has had a long record of health issues:

Tuesday’s fall was not Ginsburg’s first. In 2012 she fell and broke two ribs, an injury which went undisclosed for some time. The justice has also been treated twice for cancer. In 1999 she famously endured a battery of radiation and chemotherapy for colon cancer without missing any official business. A decade later in 2009, she underwent surgery for pancreatic cancer.

Earlier this year, many Ginsburg admirers offered to donate their organs to keep her going for another several years:

Ginsburg is one of the final remaining liberal justices on the Supreme Court. In July, she claimed that she had “about 5 more years” on the Supreme Court.

Will she last? Only time will tell.
