LOS ANGELES, Oct. 16 (UPI) -- Former first lady Nancy Reagan has been hospitalized in Los Angeles with a fractured pelvis, her spokeswoman said.

Spokeswoman Joanne Drake said Reagan, 87, checked into the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center after falling at her home last week and doctors discovered she had fractured her pelvis, CBS News reported Wednesday.

However, Reagan's injury does not require surgery and she is in good spirits, Drake said.

Drake said Reagan is undergoing physical therapy and it was not yet known how long she will remain at the hospital.
