She’s OK! First lady of Kentucky falls off back of stage

March 19, 2019

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky First Lady Glenna Bevin fell off the speaker’s platform during the Governor’s Prayer Breakfast in Lexington, but she’s OK.

Governor’s office spokesman Woody Maglinger tells The Courier Journal that Glenna Bevin was shaken up but didn’t need any medical attention. Maglinger says her chair “just slipped off the back of the stage” on Monday morning. The newspaper says a photo of the event shows the stage to be about two feet high.

Maglinger says the governor’s office has been getting questions about the fall, but it was more startling than anything else. He says the governor quickly helped the first lady before returning to finish the event, which was focused on helping children in foster care. The Governor’s Prayer Breakfast has been held annually for five decades.
