90-Year-Old Nancy Reagan

Takes a BIG Spill

Former First Lady Nancy Reagan took a nasty fall last night at an event in California -- but thankfully, a nearby Senator caught her mid-fall ... INCHES before the 90-year-old would have slammed to the ground.

Nancy was being escorted to her seat at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, CA  when she took the plunge, but the man escorting her -- Senator Marco Rubio (R-Florida) -- caught her just in time.

A spokeswoman for the library claims Nancy was NOT injured.

They're prepping the senator up for 2012, I'm from Miami and he looks do be a front runner for the republicans. You will here more about him. It's all publicity. She's still sweet!

Since she's frail and 90 years old why don't they put her in a wheelchair when she arrives at these events and wheel her to her seat then let her get up and take her seat and after the event is over wheel her out of the event back to the car that brought her.

God bless Ronald Reagan, the greatest President since Abraham Lincoln. Thankfully, he can not see how the current one is defiling everything he did for this country. Thankfully Nancy wasn't hurt, and hopefully TMZ will have more class than to try to make fun of her for falling.

I know other media will pick this up as well but it's real classless, humiliating and disrespectful to Mrs Regan, to any elderly person.

I don't find this entertaining and even more pathetic are people who only see a 90 year olds fall as an opportunity for hipocritcal ( we care more for the elderly!)catty political remarks.

My own Grandmother was 90 years old when she decided that it was best for her to be wheeled around instead of using a cane. She became fearful of breaking her hip. Based on this clip I think that Nancy Reagan should be doing the same, whether in public or private. I do not think that she would want to break her hip at her advanced age.

He shld have held her arm & his arm around her waist for more support, not just her arm. Or two people, one on each side to escort her if she insists on walking down the aisle. Miracle he didn't break her arm as she was falling.

I can't believe some of you people. She's a 90 year old lady. Can you possibly be nice for just 1 day out of your life ?
