Sen. George McGovern has been released from hospital care after falling and hitting his head outside his Mitchell home last week.
Dr. Michael Elliott, chief medical officer at Avera McKennan, said he is pleased with the 89-year-old's progress. He added that McGovern needs to rest quietly until he has completely healed.
McGovern fell and hit his head on Friday outside the McGovern Library. He was on his way to a scheduled appearance on C-SPAN's "The Contenders", a series about presidential candidates who lost the election.
