Barbara Walters has been hospitalized after falling at an inauguration party Saturday night according to ABC News spokesman Jeffrey Schneider on Jan. 20. Walters fell on a step at Peter Westmacott's residence, Britain's ambassador to the United States. The fall left her with a cut on her forehead.
The 83-year-old co-host of "The View" went to a hospital for treatment of the cut and for a full exam "out of abundance of caution" according to Schneider. He stated that Walters is alert and "telling everyone what to do," which is "a very good sign." It is not clear when Walters might be released from the hospital and ABC hasn't identified which hospital she went to.
Ms. Walters was in Washington ahead of President Obama's second inauguration. It was planned for her to supply news coverage for ABC News for the inauguration events. According to TV Newser, she will not be on the air on Monday and might not be back on the air for several days.
