“Barbara Walters fell on a stair last evening while visiting the British Ambassador’s residence, and the fall left her with a cut on her forehead,” an ABC News representative told E! News. “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.”

The 83-year-old Walters was in Washington to cover Barack Obama‘s inauguration extravaganza but will be resting in the coming days instead.
