Walters hospitalized for precaution after fall

– Veteran ABC newswoman Barbara Walters fell at an inauguration party at an ambassador’s home in Washington and was hospitalized.

Walters, 83, fell Saturday night on a step at the residence of Britain’s ambassador to the United States, Peter Westmacott, ABC News spokesman Jeffrey Schneider said. The fall left Walters with a cut on her forehead, he said.

Walters, out of an abundance of caution, went to a hospital for treatment of the cut and for a full examination, Schneider said Sunday. She was alert and “telling everyone what to do, which we all take as a very positive sign,” he said.

It was unclear when Walters might be released from the hospital, which ABC didn’t identify.
