The 83 year old newswoman, and co-host on The View, fell last night at the residence of Britain's ambassador to the United States, Peter Westmacott, this according to ABC News spokesman Jeffrey Schneider.
Walters suffered a cut to the forehead and was taken to an undisclosed hospital for treatment and a full examination. Schneider said she was alert and "telling everyone what to do, which we all take as a very positive sign."
Walters was the first female co-anchor of network evening news, working with Harry Reasoner on ABC News flagship program ABC Evening News. She’s probably best known for her 25 years as co-host of the ABC news magazine 20/20.
Walters is internationally recognized for her interviews with entertainers, royalty and rulers throughout the years. Her interviews were a must see, much the same as Oprah Winfrey’s recent interview with Lance Armstrong.
