Barbara Walters had a slip Saturday night, but her employer says the 83-year-old newswoman will be OK.
Walters fell on a staircase while visiting the British ambassador's home in Washington for an inauguration party. She cut her forehead during the tumble.
"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," an ABC spokesman wrote in a statement.
"Barbara is alert (and telling everyone what to do), which we all take as a very positive sign," the statement added.
