It has been reported that 83 year old veteran news anchor and co-host of The View Barbara Walters has been hospitalized following a fall at an inaugural party at the residence of British Ambassador to the United Nations Peter Westmacott.

It is unclear at this time exactly when she will be released and the hospital has not been identified. According to Jeffery Schneider the ABC News spokesman "out of an abundance of caution" Barbara Walters went to a hospital for treatment of the cut and for a full examination. She is reported to be in good spirits and is being kept for observation and further examination. Schneider stated that, Walters is alert "and telling everyone what to do," which is "a very positive sign." Sources state that the fall caused a cut on her forehead.

The fall happened Saturday night in Washington D.C. as she there preparing to anchor a telecast for ABC News of the Inaugural Ceremonies. It is doubtful that Barbara Walters will be released in time to make an appearance on the telecast.
