New York — Barbara Walters was reportedly taken to a hospital Saturday night after falling at an Inauguration party in Washington, D.C.

According to TMZ, the 83-year-old was visiting British Ambassador Peter Westmacott’s residence when she fell on a stair and cut her forehead.

Senior Vice President of ABC News, Jeffrey W. Schneider told POLITICO, “Out of an abundance of caution, she went to the hospital to have her cut tended to, have a full examination and remains there for observation. Barbara is alert (and telling everyone what to do), which we all take as a very positive sign.”
