The senator then explained what actually happened — that he "took a fall." He didn't elaborate beyond that.
The fall knocked him unconscious, he said, but he's now "doing better."
He said he went to a hospital, where he got "a lot of stitches" in his eyebrow and lip. He didn't know exactly how many.
The accident happened while Romney was visiting his grandchildren in Boston, he told reporters.
