ABC newswoman Barbara Walters remained hospitalized after falling and striking her head at an inauguration party Saturday night in Washington, according to the Associated Press.
The 83-year-old had the accident when she slipped on a step at the home of Great Britain’s ambassador to the United States, the wire service reported.
She got a cut on her forehead, and was taken and admitted to an undisclosed hospital for a full examination, so as not to take any chances with her injury.
It may sound like an over-the-top precaution, until you think back to what happened to Natasha Richardson, and how downplaying her skiing head injury led to her death.
