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.

Senator Rubio is a hero indeed; but as frail as Mrs. Reagan is, he could have broken that tiny bird arm catching her that way. Still he was attentive enough to keep her from hitting the floor which would have certainly caused a lot of bodily injury to someone that old and tiny. Someone should make her drink a milkshake a day and an Ensure or two. It's good to see her up and around and looking coiffed and couture clad as usual.

Really? "Nasty fall" "Almost slammed to the ground" Talk about drama. I'll admit it would've be bad for her, being so frail, to fall on the ground but to the way you say it...it's like she fell from 20 feet or something. And as for you people making bad comments about her...plotics or not, have a little respect for your elders.

It did appear as though she may have fainted. I didn't see anything that Rubio did to cause this. Thank goodness he caught her. Any kind of a fall could be devastating to someone her age. Glad she's okay.

I’m truly glad that there were people around to catch her fall. That would be awful to see an elderly woman fall and possibly seriously injuring herself - especially on video. I hope somebody checked her diaper after the incident.

Have some respect TMZ. Why post a video of her falling. Its not funny. I am a huge DemoCrat but I think showing her falling is not funny.

That douche could have seriously injured her arm. A family member of mine worked at the Regan library. She VERY rarely makes appearences. Good thing for the cat like reflexes of the people behind her.

The right wing media is spinning this as HE CAUGHT --- trying to make the man who let her fall under his watch into a hero.

1984 is here.
