Marshall University President Jerome Gilbert broke a bone in his arm during a fall on campus.

The university’s president had a post on his Twitter page that shows his arm in a sling.

“Having to learn to deal with non-dominant arm,” Gilbert said in his tweet. “Slipped on bricks at Plaza yesterday. After the Charleston press conference my physician in Huntington declared my humerus broken.”

Gilbert advised others to take care when walking during the icy conditions.

“Be careful on slippery surfaces so you don't end up like me!” Gilbert wrote.
