Utah Republican Sen. Mitt Romney has a black eye and multiple stitches after suffering a fall that rendered him unconscious.

"I took a fall. Knocked me unconscious. But I'm doing better," Romney told the Capitol press pool.

Romney was in Boston, Massachusetts, visiting his grandchildren when the incident occurred.

According to Romney, he got "a lot of stitches."

"I don't know how many. I asked the doctor how many stitches, and she said, 'I don't know,' but it's all through my eyebrow and my lip," the senator said.

Romney initially joked about the source of his black eye.

"I had kind of a tough — tough weekend. You see that?" Romney said before joking about the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), which he did not attend. "I went to CPAC, that was a problem."
