Former Kirkwood mayor back in hospital
KIRKWOOD, Mo. (AP) -- Former Kirkwood Mayor Mike Swoboda is back in the hospital.
A spokeswoman at St. John's Mercy Medical Center in suburban St. Louis said Swoboda was in satisfactory condition after being brought in Sunday.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, citing unnamed sources in a story on its web site, stltoday.com on Monday, reports he fell at his home and fractured his skull.
Swoboda's home phone is not listed, and he could not be reached at the hospital. A message left with his friend, Tom Noonan, was not immediately returned Monday.
Swoboda survived two shots to his head Feb. 7 during a City Council meeting in a melee during which Kirkwood resident Charles "Cookie" Thornton killed five city employees.
Swoboda spent weeks recuperating at a local hospital.
