Bishop Morlino hospitalized after fall

Madison Diocese Bishop Robert Morlino is hospitalized in Baltimore after falling and bumping his head, according to Madison Catholic Diocese spokesperson Brent King.

“He was walking to dinner with a bishop friend, wasn’t watching where he was going and he missed a step,” King said.  “He tried to catch himself, but made it worse by taking a few more steps and hit his head.”

King expects Morino to be OK and to be released from the hospital today.

“He broke a blood vessel in his eye, which makes him look like he has a black eye,” King said.  “He stayed at the hospital overnight for observation, but he plans to come home Thursday as scheduled.”
