Barbara Walters fell on a stair and cut her forehead at the British Ambassador’s residence on Saturday night.
Politico was the first to report Walters' injury. "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," ABC News' Jeffrey Schneider said. “Barbara is alert (and telling everyone what to do), which we all take as a very positive sign."
Walters, who is 83, was in D.C. ahead of President Obama's second inauguration. She was scheduled to contribute to ABC News' coverage of the events but will not be on-air Monday, according to TV Newser.
